 During September, USEFP was busy in the selection of Fulbright and Humphrey grantees for next year. The interview process was completed and the online applications were submitted on October 1. Congratulations to all those selected! The process was extremely competitive and many excellent candidates have been encouraged to reapply next year. The last of the 2011 Fulbrighters departed for their universities in the U.S., with USEFP arranging their travel and everything else needed to give them a good start. In October, this batch attended a dedicated Gateway Orientation organized by the Institute of International Education (IIE) at the University of Texas in Austin. A highlight of the five-day orientation was meeting Texas Senator Judith Zaffirini at the State Capitol.

Also in October, USEFP hosted the 8th Annual Fulbright and Humphrey Alumni Conference. Held at the Serena Hotel in Islamabad on October 7 – 9, the conference theme was “Giving Back: The Role of Alumni in the Socio-economic Development of Pakistan.” The conference was inaugurated by Mr. Thomas Miller,
Minister Counselor for Public Affairs and Mr. Mitchell Moss, Counselor for Public Affairs both from the U.S. Embassy and Mr. Ismail Hassan Niazi, Chairman USEFP Board of Directors. Mrs. Souriya Anwar, President of SOS Children’s Villages Pakistan gave an inspirational keynote address. U.S. Ambassador Cameron Munter and his wife Dr. Marilyn Wyatt hosted a dinner reception for the conference participants. The conference gave alumni an opportunity to highlight their social service work in child welfare, women’s empowerment, sustainable development, health reforms, and regional stability. Humphrey alumnus Dr. Amjad Saqib, was given special recognition for his work with Akhuwat Foundation as Executive Director.
