Information Session on US Universities & Scholarships
We had an Information Session on US Universities and
Scholarships by US Education Advisor and counselor, Mr. Faraz
Hussain, from United States Education Foundation Pakistan on
Friday, October 21st, 2016. Mr. Faraz introduced USEFP as a
bi-national commission between US and Pakistan, and that its
main operations are advising, scholarships, and testing. He
engaged the students with the fact that there are more than
4,700 universities with more than 1000 of majors to study in US.
Hence there are a lot of opportunities to explore in US.
Mr. Faraz discussed about different scholarship opportunities for exchange programs, further studies (MS and PhD), and Post-Doctoral Program for faculty members. He mentioned that Fulbright scholarship for advanced degree programs is the biggest scholarship in the world, and Pakistan is having the biggest share. He answered the queries related to Fulbright post-doctoral scholarship to the professors of IBA, and queries related to Fulbright Scholarships for advanced degrees to the students. He explained in detail to the students eligibility criteria, required documents, statement of purpose, letter of recommendations, standardized tests, and English language requirement of Fulbright Scholarship.
Overall the session was much fruitful and we look forward to arrange more information and counseling sessions for our students to stay updated with the opportunities.
