Fulbright programme: India is largest beneficiary

Source : The Times of India
April 27, 2012

 

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: India is the largest beneficiary of Fulbright scholar exchange programmes worldwide with more than 17,000 fellowships and other grants awarded to Indians and Americans since it began in 1950, said US Consul General Jennifer McIntyre

Talking at the Fulbright mentoring workshop here on Friday, she said that the education summit organized by India and US in Washington in October 2011 was indicative of the growing efforts of the two countries at the governmental level to address the need to educate the expanding young population and to find ways to share the collective expertize of both countries. 

She said that the US-India Educational Foundation (USIEF) served as a major link between Indian students and U S educational institutions as more than 1,00,000 Indians currently pursue higher education in the US. 

The US consul said that the US and India were not just looking at a single model to increase educational exchanges, but multiple ways were being explored through government, business, un versity and people-to-people linkages. 

She said that the progress of the new Obama-Singh 21st Century Knowledge Initiative (OSI), which is administered jointly by USIEF and the University Grants Commission (UGC) was commendable. "This is yet another flagship programme of both the American and Indian Governments that aims to build research partnerships between American and Indian institutions of higher education," she said. The first round of proposals for grants would be awarded to institutions in both countries soon, she added. 

The Fulbright scholarship is a flagship international exchange scholarship programme between the US and 155 countries, which is supported by the US Congress. 

US and India were not just looking at a single model to increase educational exchanges, but multiple ways.
