'Educational collaboration between the US and India will continue to grow' - Jennifer A.McIntyre, US Consul General, Chennai

Dec 14, 2012

The United States of America (USA) and India enjoy a host of educational collaboration initiatives both at the institutional and individual level, sponsored by governments, through fellowships, student and faculty exchange programmes, and institutional partnerships, said Jennifer A.McIntyre, US Consul General, Chennai, here on Wednesday.

 

Speaking at Periyar Maniammai University, Ms.McIntyre expressed hope that these collaborations will continue to grow.

 

One of the flagship programmes between India and USA is the Fulbright-Nehru Award, which is a higher education fellowship for outstanding students, academics, and professionals in India and US to study, do research, and engage in works that benefit both countries, she said.

 

U.S. India Educational Foundation (USIEF) supports several educational fairs each year.

 

These fairs are organised in Chennai and other major cities in South India with dozens of participating US Universities. They provide opportunity for students to discuss their educational needs and desires directly with the institutions, the Consul General said.

 

Colleges and Universities in the US are making efforts to increasingly internationalise their campuses by welcoming more students from other countries. They realise that efforts to increase international student enrolment help produce graduates who are better prepared to engage and lead in the new global economy.

 

“I’m pleased to note that over 100,000 Indians currently study in the US and we are also seeing an increase in the number of US students opting to study in India . In order to make it easier for smart students to find more information, the USIEF and the State Department provide excellent online resources,” she said.

 

The Consul General inaugurated the professors quarters at the university. K.Veeramani, Chancellor of the University, N.Ramachandran, Vice Chancellor, and Aruna, Executive Director, Periyar TBI, were present on the occasion.
