Alumni Affairs

For more than 60 years, thousands of Pakistanis have participated in U.S. Government (USG) sponsored exchange programs to enhance people-to-people ties between Pakistan and the United States. Upon their return to Pakistan, many U.S. exchange alumni have made significant contributions to Pakistan's government, business, culture and civil society. The Department of State, USEFP, U.S. Embassy Islamabad, and U.S. Consulates in Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are committed to supporting alumni initiatives in Pakistan.

In 2008, U.S. Embassy Islamabad launched the Pakistan-U.S. Alumni Network (PUAN), an umbrella association of all U.S. exchange alumni who are committed to making meaningful contributions to Pakistan though community service, conferences, mentoring future generations, and reaching out to inspire and recruit new exchange participants. All current and former Pakistani participants of U.S. federal government-sponsored exchange programs are eligible to become members of PUAN. To register, send an email to PUAN@state.gov. The network is jointly administered by the U.S. Embassy and USEFP and is one of the largest and most active alumni networks in the world, with 12,000 registered members and 11 local chapters. Active alumni chapters are located in: Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), Bahwalpur, Baluchistan, Gilgit-Baltistan (GB), Islamabad-Rawalpindi, Jamshoro, Karachi, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Lahore, Multan, and Sukkur. More information about PUAN is available at PakUSAlumniNetwork.com and on Facebook at Facebook.com/pakalumni

In addition to the Pakistan-U.S. Alumni Network, USEFP also administers the vibrant Pakistan National Association of Fulbright Alumni (Pak-NAFA) and Humphrey Alumni Association of Pakistan (HAAP). Regional alumni chapters of these associations are active and established at Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, Islamabad/Rawalpindi, Jamshoro, Gilgit, Multan, Faisalabad and Quetta. If you are an alumnus of the Fulbright/Humphrey program, please register from the sign-in box below and take part in the alumni activities at both national and regional level.

About Us

The Pakistan National Association of Fulbright Alumni (Pak-NAFA) and the Humphrey Alumni Association of Pakistan (HAAP) consist of nine active alumni chapters at Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, Karachi, Jamshoro, Multan, Faisalabad, Gilgit, and Quetta. In coordination with the alumni associations, USEFP organized periodic alumni events, both academic and cultural, in all major cities of Pakistan.

The Alumni Department had close and frequent interaction with our alumni as they provided a vital service to USEFP by reviewing applications and serving on interview panels to select future grantees. Their participation was also invaluable in the PDOs that USEFP holds for grantees headed to the U.S. as well as in circulating program announcements to potential candidates among their students, fellow faculty members and community. Around a 1000 interviews were conducted during this process, thus making it a huge achievement for the alumni department to accomplish such results in a very short span of time.

In FY 2012, the Alumni Department, headed by Mr. Mazhar Awan, coordinated with the Program, Testing and Educational Advising Departments even more to help and support their activities, particularly by engaging alumni to help them in their outreach efforts. It continued to maintain, expand and update its alumni database. Currently, USEFP has around 3000 Pakistani and 572 U.S. alumni contact details in its alumni database, which is constantly updated as we will continue to track the activities of newly returned grantees. The Alumni Department has undertaken a challenging task of not only upgrading the alumni database application but also updating alumni records starting from the first batch of USEFP alumni that went to the U.S. in 1951. The alumni database has now been fully integrated with the Programs database so that information on grantees is seamlessly transitioned to and significantly enriches the Alumni documentation process.
