The Fulbright Masters and PhD Program funds graduate study in the United States for a Master’s or Ph.D. degree . Funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), these grants cover tuition, required textbooks, airfare, a living stipend, and health insurance. USEFP also assists with the visa process.
For the Masters degree program, eligible candidates will have either a four-year Bachelor’s degree or a Bachelor’s and Master’s combination totaling 16 years of formal education from an accredited university. Recent graduates are strongly encouraged to apply, except for MBA applicants, who require 3 years of work experience.
For the PhD degree program, eligible applicants will have a Master’s, M.Phil or comparable degree (a minimum of 18 years of formal education) from an accredited university. It is highly desirable that candidates have work experience in teaching, research, or the public sector in Pakistan.
For both the Masters and PhD programs, all academic disciplines are eligible, except clinical medicine. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required for all applicants. Under the new scoring system, minimum scores of 138 in the verbal and 136 in the quantitative sections are required. Applicants must also possess a high level of fluency in spoken and written English. Short-listed applicants will be required to bring proof of TOEFL registration with them to the interview.
All successful candidates are required to sign a contract with USEFP and, for successful Ph.D. candidates, a bond with the HEC that binds them to return to Pakistan immediately after their program in the U.S. and serve the country for the number of years equivalent to the length of their scholarship program. This contract is redeemable on a year-for-year basis minimum of two years; as long as a person fulfills the service requirement, he or she will pay nothing.
Applications are accepted each year in February and the deadline to submit application is around May. The application review and interview process continues until September and the results are announced in mid-October. After selection, the university submission and placement process continues until February and visa interviews take place until June. The departure to the U.S. commences in July and onwards, depending on the universities reporting dates.
Pakistani citizens, residing and working in Pakistan, with strong academic histories in all disciplines except clinical medicine are welcome to apply.
In addition to academic work, persons selected for Fulbright programs 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. Successful candidates should be poised to assume leadership positions in their fields and must be committed to returning and serving Pakistan.

This is the story of the first flight of a young seagul. He was alone on his ledge. His two brothers
and his sister had already flown away the day before, whose wings were far shorter than his.
But he had no courage to fly like them. He had watched his parents flying with other family
members and perfecting them in the art of flying. He felt hungry and his parents were worried
about him. He searched for food but all in vain.
Once he found a piece of fish that lay at her feet. His brothers and sister were flying and eating
food. He loved to tear food that way. He tried to attract his mother. He kept calling her
plaintively. At last she picked up a piece of fish and flew to him. He leaned out eagrly. But when
she was just opposite to him, she halted, her legs hanging and wings motionless.
The piece of fish was within his reach. He waited for a moment and then maddened by hunger,
he dived at the fish. He fell downwards. His mother flow upwards. He started flying up and
down. He could feel the tips of his wings cutting through the air. He began to flap his wings and
soared higher and higher. He uttered a joyious scream. his parents also responded with
screams of joy. He was now flowing above the surface of the sea. Around him all his family
members were screaning and praising him.
Their beaks were offering him scraps of dog fish. Thus he mails his first flight.
