Tsahim Urtuu

The Tsahim Urtuu Holboo NGO is pleased to announce the names of three outstanding high school graduates of Hazara heritage who have been selected to receive full undergraduate scholarships to pursue studies at the prestigious National University of Mongolia on this blessed day of May 31, 2009 - the 10th year anniversary of global Mongolian Tsahim Urtuu Network (E-Station Network).

The initial account was to offer two scholarship awards that were available for the 2009-2013 academic years; however, with careful consideration of each applicant, the members of the Committee have decided to make an exception this year and award an additional third candidate with the scholarship.

The Tsahim Urtuu Scholarship winners are:

Meqdad Salehi
Zahra Hussain Bakhsh
Ghulam Abbas

Scholar awardees are selected from 6 finalist candidates and are judged to have the strongest record of accomplishments in school and community service and greatest potential for academic success in college. The objectives of the Tsahim Urtuu Scholarships are outlined as follows:

• To enable intellectually distinguished young Hazara high school graduate students, their country's future leaders, to study in Mongolia.
• To help scholars gain an understanding and appreciation of contemporary Mongolia.
• To motivate scholars to act as ambassadors from the Hazara community to Mongolia and vice versa throughout their lives thus strengthening the relationship between the Hazara and Mongolian peoples.
• To promote the personal and academic fulfilment of each scholar.

The scholarships were awarded through a competitive application process. The award includes full-tuition of five years of academic study, living cost, textbook cost, medical insurance, visa fee, academic fees, transportation cost from the recipient's country to Mongolia and lodging at the university campus where the recipient will study.

The scholarship awards, totalling approximately $52 000 dollars, are being financed by donations mostly from Tsahim Urtuu Network members and Mongolian nationals abroad, and grants from Mongolian corporate organizations and professional associations.

As future leaders, with a lasting understanding of Mongolian culture, history and society, Tsahim Urtuu scholars will contribute to the establishment of relationship between the Mongolian and Hazara peoples, their governments and their institutions.

On behalf of Mongolian people, and the members of the Tsahim Urtuu Network and Tsahim Urtuu Holboo, Congratulations to Meqdad Salehi, Zahra Hussain Bakhsh, and Ghulam Abbas, the Tsahim Urtuu Scholarship winners!
