The application form for 2017 is now open.
The Microsoft Student Partner Program recognizes top young minds from around the world who are passionate about technology. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity to develop real-world skills to help you succeed in your future career, to help others learn about the technology of today and tomorrow, and to connect with other like-minded students, all whilst having a ton of fun along the way. The program is our way of encouraging students who are interested in building a closer relationship with Microsoft, and those who are simply hooked on technology, to develop their skills further.
If your application is successful, you will be awarded Student Partner (MSP) status for one academic year from July to June end. During this time you can refer to yourself as a Microsoft Student Partner and act as an official representative of Microsoft at your college/university. More details on the program can be gotten from http://www.microsoftstudentpartners.com and from the MIC Nepal portal http://www.micnepal.org
Being an MSP demands dedication. We encourage every MSP to undertake many activities and numerous voluntary activities throughout the year which are designed to suit everyone's level of ability and creativity. Activities range from giving technical lectures on campus, writing articles for the student newsletter to entering the Imagine Cup or running your own computer club or society.
You'll be part of the amazing Nepalese MSPs team, with lots of opportunities to learn, plan, interact with students from different universities and countries and help other students in Nepal realizing their full potential and having fun. Microsoft Innovation Centre Nepal (MIC Nepal) will recognize your efforts and each activity you undertake.
