The HPRS department and in particular the History of Kazakhstan team of instructors are proud to be able to congratulate our Teaching Assistant, Nurlan Kabdylkhak (Tussupov), who has been admitted to study towards a PhD in History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Nurlan has received a 5-year funding from the local Department of History. Furthermore, Department also nominated Nurlan along other 6 applicants for a university-wide funding. As a result, he received a Graduate School’s Doctoral Merit Assistantship that will replace the Department funding for his first year at UNC.
This is a great achievement and we cannot but be happy for Nurlan, although he will be very much missed!
