The Trust renews partnership with University of Central Asia

A senior delegation from the University of Central Asia visited Cambridge on 9 November, to sign a renewed agreement with the Cambridge Trust for a programme of co-funded PhD scholarships.

Leading the delegation was Dr Shamsh Kassim-Lakha (pictured, right), accompanied by Dr Bohdan Krawchenko, Director General and Dean of Graduate Studies at UCA, and Dr Salim Sumar, Head of the UCA Central Asian Faculty Development.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, Professor Stephen Toope, welcomed the visitors, and described the partnership as a marvellous opportunity to enhance the learning and research of both Universities, as well as developing faculty for UCA and enabling both the University and its regions to grow economically, socially and culturally.

UCA was founded in 2000, and aims to promote the social and economic development of Central Asia, particularly its mountain societies.  It is establishing three campuses, in Tajikistan, the Kyrgyz Republic and Kazakhstan.  The International Treaty and Charter that established this secular and private university was signed jointly by the Presidents of those three countries, and the founder His Highness the Aga Khan.

UCA brings with it the commitment and partnership of the broader Aga Khan Development Network, offering an internationally recognised standard of higher education in Central Asia.

The scholarship programme in Cambridge is available in a range of academic subjects that reflect the current curricula of the UCA campuses - Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, Media and Communications, and Business and Administration.  Up to nine full scholarships will be available for students starting their research in Cambridge in 2018-19 and the two following years.
