The latest information on the status of the 170 Pakistani students who were granted a Fulbright Scholarship in 2023 was given by the United States Educational Foundation in Pakistan (USEFP). In autumn, the students will begin their studies in 81 different US colleges, focusing on fields as diverse as engineering, energy management, and the social sciences.
The Fulbright grantees for the year 2023 come from all throughout Pakistan, showcasing the country’s incredible variety. Sixty-one percent of this year’s graduating class is comprised of females.
The Fulbright students will be able to take part in a wide range of cultural and professional development events in addition to their regular academic schedule. Students can take advantage of the opportunity to study in the United States, network with experts in their field of study, and immerse themselves in American society.
Students who thrive in the classroom, show promise as future leaders, and are dedicated to serving their communities are among the many who vie for the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship. The award can be used to cover college costs, as well as living expenses and travel.
The 170 Pakistanis now participating in the Fulbright Program are only the most recent in a long line of Pakistanis to gain from the opportunity. Almost 9,600 Pakistanis have been awarded funding under the Fulbright Program since its start in 1950, allowing them to study or do research in the United States.
Students from Pakistan may learn about other cultures and acquire the tools they’ll need to make an impact on their own nation by participating in the Fulbright Program. The future of Pakistan will be greatly impacted by the 170 Fulbrighters who are leaving this fall.
