Persons selected are expected to share information about Pakistani literature and culture with their students, colleagues and community groups in the U.S. On returning to Pakistan, Fulbright scholars are expected to make a significant contribution to Pakistan’s development and to share their U.S. experiences with students, colleagues and community groups in Pakistan.
