This is indeed a very good news for me a for my tribesmen in general as Khoibu Tribe is included in the list of lIME scholarship in the Highest Learning temple of the State. Our tbibes has only 1 Ph.D , 10 MA and 2 M.Sc. So with this Prestigious Scholarship program especially for the Poor SC/ST like us, we hope that we can also produce more Masters Students Now and con join competing with the other communities. My heartfelt gratitude goes to the founder and Donors of LIME and Students League's Manipur. Thanks
