Himalayan Trust Nepal provides various scholarships to more than 43 students annually to pursue higher studies after their successful completion of
secondary school level education from the Solukhumbu district. Currently, more than 152 students are studying in Nepal and abroad on various
streams. The scholarships have enabled many students from the remote mountain villages to achieve higher education and have been successful in producing medical doctors, environmentalists, engineers, teachers, nurses, leaders, successful business entrepreneurs and many professionals over the years. Certain numbers of scholarships are reserved for students who are interested in technical and vocational education. These skills are important to provide opportunities for easy employment for the students and also to meet the service requirement of the local community.

The main goal of the scholarship program is to support students in pursuing higher education in different fields of study after the completion of their secondary school-level education. Similarly, the research fellowship is to stimulate the scholars to conduct research on relevant topics such as partial
fulfilment of their course of study.

The specific objectives to achieve the above goals are as follows:
 To provide partial scholarship grants to the student to complete their higher education
 To encourage students to develop their future careers to fulfil the job demand in the Solukhumbu region
 To encourage students to conduct a field study in Solukhumbu as partial fulfilment of their academic degree

The recent value of the scholarship does not cover all the educational expenses of the students but it does help to cover the cost of tuition and books in colleges. The rest is covered by their parents. HTN has been providing various scholarships under the financial support of the following organizations:
