58 Pakistani high school students selected for study in United States

ISLAMABAD, Aug 2: As many as 58 high school students have been selected from all over the Pakistan to spend one academic year at schools in the United States.

T J Grubisha, Cultural Affairs Officer US Embassy at a farewell ceremony to the leaving students on Wednesday said the "little ambassadors" would make big difference by bridging inter-cultural gaps.

The students are being sent under Youth Exchange and Study (YES) Programme, funded by the US Department of State Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs.

The US official said the programme would provide high school students in many countries a new opportunity to study at the US high schools and live with American host families during their one-year stay.

He said the programme's aim is not only to build a supportive community of educators that share the latest teaching methodologies, but also develop an appreciation for cultural diversity and tolerance.

In Pakistan, the programme has been implemented by International Education and Resource Network for the last four years, which supports networking of students and teachers working at national and international levels.

A panel discussion was held among the students intending to go to United States and also the students from previous batches, who shared their views about their stay in United States. App
