The principal objective of the FY 2020 Global Undergraduate Exchange Program in Pakistan (herein referred to as “Global UGRAD – Pakistan”) is to provide a substantive exchange experience at a U.S. college or university to a diverse group of emerging student leaders from underrepresented socio-economic and geographic sectors in Pakistan. The students will complete one semester of non-degree undergraduate study in the United States at accredited two-and four-year institutions. In this context, the recipient organization should ensure that participants are able to enroll full-time in courses at U.S. institutions alongside U.S. peers, and provide the participants with opportunities and enrichment activities designed to help them understand the United States and U.S. citizens inside and outside the classroom. To enhance the knowledge and skills of the participants, each student cohort should have leadership development as an overarching theme for the program.
The Global UGRAD Pakistan Program will provide approximately 130 scholarships at U.S. institutions of higher education to outstanding students from non-elite sectors in Pakistan. Scholarships will be granted primarily to students who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program in Pakistan, although students just completing their final year of high school will also be eligible. The recipient organization will place participants in non-degree programs at both two- and four-year U.S. colleges and universities.
