Application Deadline:

This program will fund up to two years of graduate study in
the
United States for a Master’s degree program. Successful candidates

will begin their program of study in the fall of 2008. In addition to

academic work, persons selected are expected to share information
about
Pakistani life and culture with their U.S. colleagues and with
community
groups in the U.S. On returning to Pakistan, Fulbright
grantees are expected
to share their U.S. experiences with colleagues
and community groups in
Pakistan.

All disciplines are welcome to apply, with the exception of
clinical
medical fields. Priority will be given to the pure and applied

sciences, agriculture, health, economics, teaching of English,
education
and fields related to economic development. The grant funds
tuition,
required textbooks, airfare, a living stipend, and health
insurance. USEFP
will assist with the visa application process.

Successful applicants must
be committed to serving Pakistan. It is
highly desirable that candidates
have work experience in teaching,
research, or the public sector in
Pakistan. They must be Pakistani
citizens with a strong academic history and
either a four-year
Bachelor’s degree or a Bachelor’s and Master’s totaling
16 years of
formal education from an accredited university. Recent graduates
are
strongly encouraged to apply. Successful candidates should be poised

to assume a leadership position in their field.

Employees and their
spouses, fiancés, siblings, children and parents
of the Fulbright
organization, the U.S. Department of State, or USAID
are also
ineligible.

Please note that GRE and TOEFL scores must be submitted along
with
the application. For applicants who are taking the GRE and TOEFL

after the application deadline, proof of registration must be
attached
with your application and scores must be received by July
30, 2007.
Applicants will not be considered until both TOEFL and GRE
scores are
received with some preference to persons getting their
scores and
applications in early. Applicants must possess a high
level of fluency in
spoken and written English. The minimum iBT TOEFL
score required is 90. On
the GRE, a minimum score of 300 is required
on each section of the
examination, with a higher score on the
section most applicable to the
applicant’s field of study.

You may apply to both the masters and Ph.D.
program, as a continued
Masters leading to Ph.D. USEFP reserves the right to
award grants in
the program it considers most appropriate.
