Duquesne University is a private institution that was founded in 1878 and has a rich history of student centered teaching philosophy. Duquesne enrolls over 8000 students per year with over 30 percent of these students enrolled in graduate programs. Duquesne’s CAHME accredited Master of Health Administration program serves as a foundation for training our current scholars, Drs. Arailym Beisbekova and Farida Iskakova. While the scholars completed just 5 weeks of their training, they already participated in numerous university activities, including taking 2 MHA level classes, observing 4-5 undergraduate courses, participating in the Integrative Health Summit, participating in Adaptive Action Lab, and having fun with other MHA students at our annual MHA student social. Duquesne University is honored to host Bolashaq scholars and opened to new scholars, new students, and new collaborations.

We, at the Central Asia Program at George Washington University, would like to extend our warmest congratulations on the 30th anniversary of the Bolashak International Program! We deeply value our partnership with Bolashak and are grateful for the collaboration. Since 2014, we have partnered with Bolashak and welcomed approximately 100 bright scholars who are making significant contributions in various fields, thereby advancing the realm of science in Kazakhstan. We hope that our collaboration will continue to flourish and evolve, creating even more opportunities for students to broaden their horizons and acquire valuable skills for their future endeavors.
Once again, congratulations on this remarkable achievement. We eagerly anticipate many more years of successful collaboration with the Bolashak International Program.

Indiana University President Pamela Whitten has asked me to respond to your letter of 26 July 2023 (No. 15-1-15/5469). First, allow me to express how much we appreciate the opportunity to once again host students sponsored through the Bolashaq Scholarship Program, administered by the Centre for International Programs. The longstanding relationship we have had with your organization and the number of wonderful students we have hosted over the years are certainly points of pride for Indiana University.
Thank you for informing us about the 30th anniversary of the Bolashaq Scholarship Program. We would like to offer our sincere congratulations to you for reaching this important milestone. As you likely know, Indiana University administered the U.S. side of the Bolashaq program from 2006 to 2009.
