USEFP scholarships for Pakistani students

60 Pakistanis set to leave for study at US community colleges
Islamabad, May 15: A group of 60 Pakistanis is all set to depart to USA to study at community colleges on fully funded one-year scholarship awarded by the United States Educational Foundation in Pakistan (USEFP), which has been promoting people to people contact since 1950.

"I could never imagine of such dream-opportunity given the financial condition of my family. It is like getting hold of a treasure out of the blue," said Sadia Sikander, who has seven dependents to feed.

"I have gone through very hard times after the demise of my father when all of us were children. I was doing three jobs to make the ends meat. Getting USEFP's grant was not an easy task, as it required number of sessions one has to go through. I still remember, coming back from my job and preparing for the test. My head started spinning and eyes burning due to sleepless nights, still I pushed myself to take up the challenge to prove myself worth having the opportunity. It is amazing that every thing fell into place at last," jubilant Sikander said confidently.

All the 60 grantees of scholarship were thrilled to bits during a dinner hosted by USEFP before a pre-departure orientation on Friday.

They will be placed in various community colleges that operate under a policy of "Open Admission", which means anyone with a high school diploma may attend, regardless of prior academic status or college entrance exam scores.

However, students are required to appear in an assessment tests before enrolling. The Community College Initiative Programme (CCI) enables professionals to learn the best practices in their field globally.

Rita Akhtar, Executive Director, USEFP, while talking to media said it was a unique programme with distinctive criteria for professionals having a minimum of two years experience in their respective fields.

Around 4,000 Pakistanis and 800 Americans have participated in USEFP administered exchange programmes so far.

Responding to a question, Rita said American parents were hesitant to send their children to Pakistan due to security reasons. "American scholars, however would be visiting Pakistan by the end of this year to enhance people-to-people contact," she added.

Amir Akhtar form Rahim Yar Khan, a remote district of the Punjab province, said he was going for business studies and was optimistic about the future. Daily times
