It is a good opportunity for the youth of Pakistan as it helps them in studying at the prestigious universities of the USA. Moreover, it is a cultural exchange initiative adopted by the US for students from Pakistan.
The program allows the young potential students of Pakistan, to go abroad and present their cultural values in a foreign country. These students go there to represent their country and learn the cultural values of the USA as well. The goal of this program is to help students understand the importance of diversity and inclusion.
