Every year, International Education Week (IEW)


is celebrated around the world as an opportunity to promote and celebrate the positive impact of international education and cultural exchange. Started as a joint initiative between the U.S. Departments of State and of Education, IEW is part of the effort to promote global learning and encourage future leaders to benefit from study and exchange programs in the United States. During IEW 2010 USEFP hosted a series of events in Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad to celebrate the achievements of Pakistani students and to promote higher education options in the U.S, pulling a crowd of over 700 nationwide. Celebrations were anchored around three main audiences: students, counselors and heads of educational institutions. Media was actively engaged to spread the word around. Various live radio shows also were also aired on the occasion across Pakistan. You can listen to one of the programs aired on FM 94 in the advising section of this newsletter.

Fulbright, Community College and Undergraduate Program grantees keep on making news by taking great initiatives, including community service and fundraising for flood relief, or having splendid achievements in terms of awards and other recognitions. Alumni are also active in serving the community and have contributed towards flood relief efforts. This fall, several U.S. Fulbright Scholars have shared their knowledge and experience at universities and conferences in Islamabad and Lahore, as well as in lectures at USEFP. With deadlines of various U.S. colleges and universities approaching, a large number of students appeared for the SAT (400) and GRE(112) exams via USEFP Testing Centers.
