US ambassador congratulates Pakistani students travelling for undergraduate study
Islamabad: US Ambassador Richard Olson congratulated more than one hundred Pakistani students travelling to the United States for undergraduate study as part of the U.S. government funded Global Undergraduate Global UGRAD Program, says a press release.
“I am proud of our student exchange programs here in Pakistan, which are the largest anywhere in the world and demonstrate the depth of our commitment to Pakistan’s young people,” said Ambassador Olson.
More than one hundred Pakistani students will depart in January for a semester of study at U.S. colleges and universities under the Global UGRAD fellowship program which is an initiative of the U.S. Department of State. The U.S. government fully funds these fellowships for the entire period of study.
The United States Educational Foundation in Pakistan USEFP administers the program and held a pre-departure orientation December 1415 to help students prepare to study in the U.S.
“The really exciting thing about this group of undergraduates,” said Ms. Rita Akhtar, Executive Director USEFP, “is that so many of these students come from remote or economically disadvantaged areas of Pakistan. The group includes 31 students from Punjab, 25 from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
