KARACHI: US Consulate General in Karachi in collaboration with EducationUSA celebrated International Education Week (IEW) with a series of in-person, hybrid and virtual events that underscored advantages of US higher education.  

Geared towards students, parents and school counselors, these activities focused on unparalleled international student experience and wealth of quality programmes and opportunities available in United States.  

IEW highlights shared value United States and Pakistan place on higher education and educational exchanges and illustrates impact a first-rate education can make to an individual, a community and a nation.  

Each year, US government supports approximately 800 Pakistanis to study in United States, including fully funded fellowships for 100 masters and 50 PhD candidates through our flagship Fulbright Programme.  

Consul General Nicole Theriot noted, “International students gain cutting-edge skills and better appreciation of complexity, challenges and opportunities of life in 21st century.” These educational opportunities at top-quality US academic institutions represent an important investment in Pakistan’s future and are emblematic of value United States places on partnership with Pakistan.  

“Upon their return, these students are poised to succeed in their chosen professional fields and make meaningful contributions to Pakistan and world.”  

In Pakistan, EducationUSA is hosted at United States Educational Foundation in Pakistan (USEFP), a bi-national commission established in 1950 by governments of Pakistan and United States.
