USEFP: Pakistan Tour

Islamabad,:  A group of 17 university representatives traveled to Pakistan from the United States as part of the United States Educational Foundation in Pakistan’s (USEFP) and Education USA’s effort to facilitate U.S. study opportunities for Pakistani students.  During the 11th biannual South Asia Tour, the university representatives visited Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad, where they participated in college fairs and conducted high school and university visits.  In meetings with Pakistani students, parents, and teachers, the representatives shared information regarding admissions, financial aid, and academic programs in the United States.  American institutions of higher education actively recruit Pakistani students because of the contributions they make to U.S. campuses, including through diversity and commitment to academic achievement.

“For some of the Pakistani students, this was their first opportunity to meet in person with a U.S. university representative and to discuss their study plans,” said Kathryn Crockart, the Minister Counselor for Public Affairs at the U.S. Embassy.  “We strongly encourage Pakistani parents and students to consider the opportunities that a U.S. education represents for graduates.  The United States has more than 4,700 institutions of higher education.  There are universities to fit every career goal and pocketbook.  We hope to see more Pakistani students studying in the U.S. and sharing their cultural heritage with their American classmates.”

“Pakistani students’ interest in opting for a U.S. degree has increased in recent years,” said USEFP Executive Director Rita Akhtar. “The credit goes to the administration of educational institutions that encourage students to study in the United States and to parents who support this choice.”

The following universities participated in the tour: The University of Evansville, NYU Tandon School of Engineering, DePauw University, Hiram College, Albion College, Merrimack College, Point Park University, Siena College, University of Missouri-Kansas City, Colorado State University, Minerva Schools at KGI, University of South Dakota, Central Washington University, St. Cloud State University, Ohio Wesleyan University, Murray State University, and Stony Brook University.
