The United States Educational Foundation in Pakistan (USEFP) organized a daylong event to encourage students to pursue opportunities for learning and growth and emphasized on higher education opportunities in the US.
The highlight of the event involved students, parents, and implementers of the English Access Microscholarship Program. Shazia Khan, Manager Fulbright Outreach and Educational Advising at USEFP, highlighted the importance of international education. “Education is powerful tools that can help Pakistan’s youth build a better tomorrow,” she said.
The Access Program, established by the US Department of State, provides scholarships worldwide to talented 14-18 year-olds from disadvantaged backgrounds for after-school English language classes. Since the program’s inception in 2004, over 70,000 students in more than 85 countries have participated in the Access Program. Pakistan has the largest Access Program in the world; Over 5,000 students in 17 locations across Pakistan have benefited from this initiative.
Director of English Language Programs at the US Embassy, Joëlle Uzarski, encouraged the access students to explore opportunities for further learning. “English,” she said, “is a valuable tool which you can use to open doors to further education, better jobs, and friendships with other young people around the world. The competition for these scholarships is tough, and you have been selected because we believe you have a bright future.”
The event started with a welcome speech by USEFP, encouraging students and parents to take advantage of free-of-cost educational advising and online resources offered by USEFP in the three major cities of Pakistan. Select Access Program alumni spoke of their experience and provided a mentoring session for new access students who have recently been awarded scholarships.
