For any student community growth overseas exposure is the key under the modern circumstances to understand the changes.
Recently SKUAST-K did its first international outreach initiative in line with NEP-2020.
It was flagged off by Lieutenant Governor Manoj and he dispatched a batch of 12 undergraduate students from SKUAST-Kashmir on a study tour to Kansas State University, USA.
The 12 undergraduate students are from the faculties of Agriculture, Horticulture and Forestry. They will be visiting the USA under the Student Overseas Fellowship Programme of National Agricultural Higher Education Project (NAHEP) funded by Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) & World Bank.
The 2-months long capacity-building fellowship will expose the undergraduate students to a global learning ecosystem, farmer communities and industry establishment.
Under the programme, the students will spend a minimum two months in the USA, primarily in ‘Sustainable Intensification Innovation Lab’.
The students based on their areas of interest will be attached to relevant faculty and student groups to expose them to the global learning ecosystem and to imbibe new ideas, educational and research systems of the USA, and explore opportunities for higher studies in the USA.
