Scholarship and Technical Training

The Government of Japan started providing technical training to Nepalese since Japan joined the Colombo Plan in 1954. Scholarships have been provided for university students by the Government of Japan since the early 1960s, a few years after the establishment of diplomatic relations. As a result, every year many Nepalese return home after completing their study, research and JICA's technical training in Japan. Nepalese who have become acquainted with Japanese society and culture, have organized the Japan University Students Association, Nepal (JUSAN) and JICA Alumni Association, Nepal (JAAN) respectively and have played a vital role in promoting mutual understanding between the people of the two countries.
