New York: US has become the educational destiny for Pakistani students pursuing higher education, as the number of Pakistani students studying at different US educational institutions is surging at 17 percent, on an annual basis.
A US government report suggests that the number of Pakistani students in the US has surged by 17 percent in 2022, compared to 2021.
This week, a report released from the US capital – Washington said that the US has been the top priority for the students of South Asian Countries including Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, and Nepal.
Bengali students are taking lead with an annual 23 percent penetration in the US educational institutions, followed by Indians with 19 percent, during the period under review.
It is relevant to mention here that Pakistani students are making the most of the US-funded Fulbright Scholarship program in the educational field under which as many as 150 students go the different US institutions for the higher education.
US has been kind enough to ensure monetary assistance for some 800 students from Pakistan each year under the Exchange Program.
This is the reason why Pakistan is considered as the hub of students’ network formerly graduated from the US.
‘Open Donors Report on International Educational Exchange’ suggests that the number of students visiting the US from China and India constitute 52 percent of the total students coming to the US from across the globe.
