The 2013 Fulbright awards have been announced and the competition is now open! This year again USEFP is managing the world’s largest Fulbright Program. The competition was launched in a media event on Feb. 10, with Deputy Chief of Mission Ambassador Richard Hoagland as the chief guest. The Fulbright Program is just one of many U.S.-government funded educational, professional, and cultural exchange programs that build people to people ties among Americans and Pakistanis. For application and other details, please visit http://www.usefpakistan.org/Fulbright2013.html

Early in February, U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asian Affairs, Mr. James R. Moore, visited USEFP to meet with program alumni. Mr. Moore spoke with alumni of the Fulbright Master’s Program, the Global Undergraduate Program, and the Community College Initiative Program. The alumni recounted their experiences in the U.S. and discussed their activities and achievements since returning to Pakistan.

On January 28, a new Fulbright and Humphrey Alumni Chapter was launched at the University of Agriculture in Faisalabad. Executive Director Rita Akhtar was present for the election of officers after meeting with Vice Chancellor Dr. Iqrar Ahmad Khan to discuss strategies for encouraging more agriculture students to apply for Fulbright Awards. Welcome Dr. Muhammad Ashraf, President of the new Faisalabad Chapter of the Fulbright and Humphrey Alumni Association!

In February, USEFP participated in the Dawn Education Expo in Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad. This year the Expo drew an audience of nearly 10,000 students, scholars, teachers, parents and professionals. USEFP booths in each city featured EducationUSA Advisers, Fulbright Program Officers and Prometric Testing staff members, all working to get the word out about higher education opportunities in USA.
