The summer months are always busy with arranging the departures of grantees in all our programs. This year in addition to the usual Fulbright Degree Program grantees, Humphrey grantees, and Fulbright Scholars, USEFP successfully sent off all the 50 Global UGRAD participants who are starting their semester in the U.S. this fall. A second batch of UGRAD grantees will be going in the spring semester. Of the 59 Community College Program participants scheduled to start this fall, 57 have already departed. All in all, USEFP has sent off 275 participants of various programs this summer. We take pride in sharing the news that not only will we be doubling the number of undergraduate grantees travelling under Global UGAD program from 100 to 200, but we will also be launching brand new programs for Journalists and Public Administration Professionals in the coming year.

The summer has also been busy with the selection of the new cohort of Fulbright Masters and PhD grantees, Humphrey Fellows and Foreign Language Teaching Assistants. The results of the selection will be announced in October. We continue to welcome back our returning grantees and look forward to their enthusiastic participation in our alumni programs. Hats off to two of our Alumni - Dr. Muhammad Rasul for receiving ‘Pride of Performance Award’ and Dr. Zaffar Mohammad for receiving ‘Sitara-e-Imtiaz’. USEFP heartily congratulates both the professors.
