Microsoft Student Partner Program

The Microsoft Student Partner Program is an annual award program designed to recognize and reward the most talented and most proactive computing science-related students for their contribution to the academic technical community.

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 .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.
