NG offers 3 different types of scholarships to support young people to access higher education at Nehemiah Gateway University in Bucimas, Albania.

Amaro Tan scholarship 

The Amaro Tan Scholarship is named after NG’s Amaro Tan Project in Pogradec, Albania. Amaro Tan means “our place” in the Romani language, reflecting the project’s identity as a place where children from marginalized communities find a place which is more than just a school. 

The Amaro Tan Scholarship honors this principle of help for self-help. Students from Amaro Tan, Nehemia School, and NG’s international partner organizations in East Africa, Latin America, and Southeastern Europe are eligible to apply for support to study at Nehemiah Gateway University, where they gain the tools and skills they need to help and empower people to sustainably shape and determine their lives in dignity and independence.

"Mitrush Kuteli" Scholarship 

The Mitrush Kuteli Scholarship honors Mitrush Kuteli, the esteemed Albanian writer, economist, and native son of Pogradec. It is awarded to students from Pogradec and other parts of Albania who aspire to follow in the footsteps of Kuteli in the fields of economics and community capacity building. 

Mitrush Kuteli, born September 13, 1907, in Pogradec, is considered one of Albania’s greatest writers, a master stylist of the Albanian language who drew upon the traditions of Albanian folklore and was a respected translator and literary critic. As both writer and economist, Kuteli served his country in countless ways, from preparing Albania’s first financial laws to helping build the foundations of  Albanian literature. 
To honor our roots in Pogradec, and to inspire a new generation of Albanian leaders, Nehemiah Gateway is thrilled to give the name of Mitrush Kuteli to a scholarship at our university.
