The government of Nepal is currently looking to promote creative and innovative ideas and projects coming from young innovators. So, if you are thinking of developing new technology here in Nepal but feel that you are financially incapable of properly applying the idea, then you can get funded by the government. The government is financially supporting your new ideas and innovations.
The government has been providing financial assistance to people with innovative ideas, concluding that the development of new thinking and technology is essential for a prosperous Nepal campaign currently in operation.

The applicant will have to apply with their proposals within 35 days of the notice at the NAST office.
A sample of the application is available on NAST’s website. The proposals that innovators will provide have to be a way to solve common Nepalese problems existing currently. And, after receiving the grant, the work has to be completed within the current financial year.
