Under the initiative of HEC’s Talent hunt scheme and US-Pak arrangement of providing scholarships to faculty interested in pursuing their PhD at US universities. The candidates need to clear a GRE test and seek admission in US Universities. In light of this initiative a number of workshops and seminars are in pipeline to facilitate the candidates. Dr. Qaisar Mehmood (T.I) and Ms. Saadia Munir Assistant Registrar (General) arranged a session for the students and faculty on November 30, 2016 at 10:00 am in Language Lab.
Ms. Shiza Toor and her team visited CIIT Abbottabad from US Educational Foundation of Pakistan (USEFP). They briefed about the Fulbright Scholarships and a general Overview of the GRE test. How one should attempt it. One of the speakers told the audience that they conducted an 8 hour long test of a blind person and he attempted and cleared it and is a Fulbright scholar in USA. So if he can do it, anyone can do it, it all requires our personal commitment and belief in ourselves.
The session was very fruitful and the audience asked quite a number of questions from the speakers. In the end, USEFP team consented to visit for a training session in January 2017. They will intimate the dates. It was proposed that the session be held on a weekend, preferably a Saturday, so that the Faculty and students can take maximum benefit of this training and ultimately a mock test will be held after a 15-20 days gap.
