ANPA Mentorship Program


Researchers who are residing in USA and working in different fields have been brought together by ANPA in order to conduct a mentorship program where they will be guiding students for thesis B.Sc. 4th year project work, M.Sc. thesis or even PhD dissertation.  

In the past years, ANPA has already been able to act a facilitator between multiple students in Nepal and researchers in USA for research work. 

As of current date, following students have successfully completed their thesis under the collaboration between faculties in Nepal and USA.
