"Mitrush Kuteli" Scholarship 

The Mitrush Kuteli Scholarship honors Mitrush Kuteli, the esteemed Albanian writer, economist, and native son of Pogradec. It is awarded to students from Pogradec and other parts of Albania who aspire to follow in the footsteps of Kuteli in the fields of economics and community capacity building. 

Mitrush Kuteli, born September 13, 1907 in Pogradec, is considered one of Albania’s greatest writers, a master stylist of the Albanian language who drew upon the traditions of Albanian folklore and was a respected translator and literary critic. As both writer and economist, Kuteli served his country in countless ways, from preparing Albania’s first financial laws to helping build the foundations of \ Albanian literature. 

To honor our roots in Pogradec, and to inspire a new generation of Albanian leaders, Nehemiah Gateway is thrilled to give the name of Mitrush Kuteli to a scholarship at our university.
