Pakistan – 139 Students Receive Scholarship

As part of the US-Pakistan educational collaboration, 139 Pakistanis obtained renowned Fulbright grants to pursue graduate studies and research at premier universities in the United States.

Funded by the United States Government, the leaving students attended a virtual pre-departure orientation hosted by the United States Educational Foundation in Pakistan (USEFP) to educate them about the Fulbright Program.

The 2021 Fulbright cohort came from 52 universities across Pakistan, with women comprising 71 percent of the group. This year, 93 Master’s and 39 Ph.D. students and seven Fulbright Overseas Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) fellows were selected for these grants. They will attend 78 US institutions and study a broad array of academic areas, including engineering, energy management, and sociology.

“For almost 70 years, Pakistan and the USA have been sending people to each other’s coasts, strengthening our communities and forging enduring relationships between tens of thousands of Americans and Pakistanis,” stated the US Embassy’s Acting Minister Counselor for Public Affairs, Julia Fendrick. “Through this event, you will become envoys and bridge builders. You will link and enhance the connection between the United States and Pakistan.”

Fulbright is the premier academic exchange program of the US Department of State that covers travel, living stipends, medical insurance, and tuition for the full time of the study. Since 2005, 2,401 Pakistanis have received the Fulbright scholarship to study, conduct research, share ideas, and contribute to finding solutions to shared worldwide issues.
