1. The Assam Scholarship for Honors Research Award

(for HONORS COLLEGE STUDENTS IN GOOD STANDING WITH THE HONORS COLLEGE)


The Assam Scholarship is named after Assam, Dr. Hiranya Nath’s home state in India. Assam is a beautiful place with its own history, culture, and language. This region holds enormous potential for economic growth and is rich in natural resources with a pool of highly talented professionals, well-groomed in modern science and technology. Assam is also the eastern corridor to Southeast Asia. The Assam Scholarship was created to increase name recognition for Assam among Sam Houston State students who may become interested in or may generate interest among others in that part of emerging India from a global business perspective. (Dr. Nath is an Associate Professor of Economics at Sam Houston State University. He earned his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Art at the University of Delhi, India. He earned his Master of Philosophy at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi, India.
