The Tibetan Scholarship Program (TSP) is one of the most prestigious scholarship programs for Tibetans in exile. Over the last three decades, TSP has produced more than 488 graduates in different fields of study. TSP alumni have been serving the Central Tibetan Administration and other Tibetan organisations and have become the Tibetan community in exile’s vital source of human resources.
