USEFP is pleased to launch its new bi-monthly newsletter. In the past two months, USEFP has many activities and achievements to highlight in its four programmatic areas: Programs, Educational Advising and Outreach, Alumni and Testing. April kicked off the celebration of USEFPís 60th anniversary with Ambassador Anne W. Patterson, Education Secretary Mr. Imtiaz Kasi, and HEC Chairman Dr. Javed Laghari inaugurating the 7th Annual Fulbright Alumni Conference held at the National Centre for Physics in Islamabad. Two prominent American scholars, Dr. James Eldin Reed, conference keynote speaker, and Dr. Frances Anderson also travelled to Pakistan to participate in this conference as well as to hold workshops, give lectures, and otherwise interact with Pakistani professors and students.

In May, pre-departure orientations were held for two large groups of students participating in programs funded by the U.S. Department of State. The first, held on May 13-14, was for 60 students selected for one-year programs at community colleges in the U.S. The second, held on May 21-22, was for 160 undergraduates participating in one of five USEFP or US Embassy administered programs. In addition to preparing them to travel to and study in the U.S., students at both orientations were given a chance to meet and mingle at dinners held at USEFP complete with musical entertainment, prizes, and fun.

During March and April USEFP was also busy in outreach and recruiting for the Fulbright Masters and PhD programs, visiting universities in Sindh, Punjab, Khyber Paktunkhwa, Gilgit Baltistan and Azad Jammu & Kashmir. Another noteworthy achievement was USEFPís standardized testing centerís winning a third Prometric Platinum Award for best centers in Asia. We hope you enjoy reading about these and our other activities!
