the US Embassy.Alumni, mostly from the US Embassy, represented more
than 55 US colleges and universities ranging from small liberal arts
colleges to medium and large public universities.

prospective students and parents."There are excellent academic
opportunities for Pakistani students in the US" said USEFP Executive

in the US, there really is a programme for everyone. For some students,
financial aid and scholarship options are also available to make a US
education especially affordable." Since many universities have

In addition to giving an opportunity to meet alumni representatives and
educational advisers, the fair enabled students and parents to learn
more about application deadlines, admission requirements, and financial
aid options. Similar fairs will be held in Karachi on September 22 and
in Lahore on September 29.
