4. A large number of attendees of First Nepal Winter School received travel and accommodation grants. Why is there limited such grants this year?
Answer: NAAMII is a not-for-profit research institute dedicated to capacity building of youth of Nepal and democratization of AI. It is our continuous effort to make AI education as affordable and as accessible as possible. We have given free registration to almost all accepted students this year. However, additional financial supports such as travel and accommodation grants is dependent on our sponsorship and funding situation every year. While it is our best effort to provide as much financial support to as many attendees as possible, as a new institution, we are bound by various financial and logistic constraints.
