“More than 1,000 Pakistanis should receive scholarships to pursue masters and PhD degrees in America in coming years,” Dr Clark said. “This is a smart investment-for Pakistan, for its future, and for continued close ties between Pakistan and the United States. It should also strengthen professional, research and people-to-people ties between Pakistani and American universities.”

This year, 107 Pakistanis on Fulbright scholarships will begin studies for masters and PhD degrees at US universities. The application period for scholarships in 2006 recently ended.
