Scholar Highlight: Sobhan Tamang, Canopy Nepal Excellence Scholar-FESSHIP

Sobhan Tamang, Canopy Nepal Excellence Scholar
My name is Sobhan Tamang and I am from Nawalpur, Sindhupalchowk. I moved to Kathmandu after I completed my SEE exam.  Currently, I am living in Kadaghari, Kathmandu with my sisters and brother to continue my PCL Nursing, a practical based course equivalent to diploma course at Nepal Institute of Health Science (Stupa College) which is located at Jorpati, Kathmandu. My hobbies are reading, traveling, and singing.

I have always dreamt of being a nurse since my childhood but nursing being one of the expensive courses in Nepal, it seemed very difficult for me to study nursing due to financial difficulty in my family. As the days passed, everyone in my family was worried about my future studies, but at the same time, I felt very fortunate as one of my teachers introduced me to Canopy Nepal, an organization that is supporting students to continue their education in the various field through one of its scholarship programs. I completed the application process at the beginning and later, was called for an interview from FESSHIP, one of the scholarship programs of Canopy Nepal. After some time, I got a phone call stating I was selected as a Canopy Nepal Excellence Scholar - FESSHIP. I still remember the day and the happiness in my family including myself for an opportunity to continue my education.

Meanwhile, after completing my SEE exam, I enrolled in the bridge course during the result waiting time period. At the same time, I was informed about the Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT) exam and scholarships by my family and team members from Canopy Nepal. I worked very hard for the preparation of the CTEVT exam and appeared in the exam. Also after some time, the result was published and I secured the first position and got a full scholarship. It was like a dream come true moment for me. Currently, I am in my 1st year of PCL nursing and has been almost a year being a scholar of Canopy Nepal Excellence Scholar - FESSHIP. This program has not only provided me a scholarship but has helped me enhance and boost my skills through various workshops, training, career counsellings, motivational speeches, panel discussion, health education, etc. that has been helping in my personal and professional development. From Career Counseling Sessions organized at Kanti Ishwori Madhyamik Vidhyalaya is one of the most productive sessions for me personally as I learned a lot on the nursing field which was facilitated by one of the panelists, Sharada Ma’am. I also got an opportunity to talk to her one-one where she gave me insights on studying tips and techniques, exam preparation and time management related to PCL nursing.


Canopy Nepal and FESSHIP have always motivated me to be a better version of myself. It is like a second home to me and the team of this organization is like the members of my family. The persistence and dedication of this organization have made me more passionate about working with children like me in the days to come. I from deep of my heart thank Canopy Nepal and FESSHIP including me in your family and providing me an opportunity to continue my education so that I can do my part to serve my community and nation, thank you so much.
