The Embassy of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the United States has extended fellowships to Charles Santos and Emin Hasan to visit Kazakhstan’s three major cities for a week in August. The fellowship aims to raise American awareness of the Central Asian nation’s history, culture, business opportunities and science and technological development.
These two students will meet with representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Industry and New Technologies of the Republic of Kazakhstan to share their experiences and ask questions, while developing personal research projects.
My personal research project examines Kazakhstan’s potential for mobile health technologies. I’ll be using this blog to share my experience and test out ideas as I continue my research.
The fellowship’s partners include Air Astana, Sayat and the Russian American Travel Agencies Association.
