LAKHIMPUR: A young boy dreamt to become a space scientist. He nurtured this dream since the day he understood what space science was. Now this dream of the meritorious student named Hoimanta Ishan will soon be coming true as he has won a scholarship to study 'Earth and Space Exploration' in the School of Earth and Space Exploration under Arizona State University in the USA.

Hoimanta Ishan is the son of Sewok Chandra Chutia, professor of Physics in Dhakuakhana College, and Juri Das, teacher of Dhakuakhana Jatiya Bidyalaya. He passed the High School Leaving Certificate exam from Dhakuakhana Jatiya Bidyalaya securing 92.80 overall percentage and Higher Secondary exam from Balmiki Bidya Kanan in the Science stream by bagging 91.2 percentage with flying colours this year. In 2019, with hard work and perseverance, Hoimanta sat for two tough tests titled as SAT

(Scholastic Assessment Test) and DET (Duolingo English Test) in order to fulfil his aspiration of studying his favorite subject abroad.

Hoimanta cleared the two entrance tests and became eligible to study in the one of the most prestigious universities of the world. He could win the scholarship for studying the course due to his outstanding results in the two tests. In this regard, Hoimanta's father, Sewok Chandra Chutia said, "Hoimanta has dreamt to be a space scientist since his childhood. In order to realize his dream and to clear the SAT and DET successfully, he studied hard after he had appeared for the HSLC exam. We are happy and glad with his result.

Hoimanta Ishan will pay almost all the expenditure from the scholarship to study in the university whereas any student without scholarship will have to spend 52,420 American dollars per year. Regular classes will start from August.
