Pakistani Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai.
NEW YORK:
The US Congress has passed a bill named after Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai that expands the number of scholarships to women in Pakistan under a merit and needs-based programme, according to the information posted on the congressional website.
The ‘Malala Yousafzai Scholarship Act’ was passed by the House of Representatives in March 2020, and the US Senate adopted it by a voice vote on January 1, 2021.
It has now been sent to the White House for US President Donald Trump to sign it into law.
The bill requires the US Agency for International Development (USAID) to award at least 50 per cent of scholarships under a Pakistan-based higher education scholarship programme to Pakistani women, from 2020 to 2022, across a range of academic disciplines and in accordance with existing eligibility criteria.
The USAID is also required to consult with and leverage investments by the Pakistani private sector and Pakistani diaspora in the United States to improve and expand access to education programmes in Pakistan as per the norms of the bill.
The agency has to brief the Congress annually on the number of scholarships awarded under the programme, including breakdowns by gender, discipline, and degree type.
The percentage of recipients who were involuntarily pushed out of the programme for failure to meet programme requirements; and the percentage of recipients who dropped out of school, including due to retaliation for seeking education will also be calculated.
Since 2010, the USAID has awarded more than 6,000 scholarships for young women to receive higher education in Pakistan. The bill expands this programme.

And the tinfoil conspiracy theorists will arrive in just about 3....2...1 to call this an Illuminati saazish.
I want to praise you for your intellect and wisdom but the words I want to use are too hard for the moderators to swallow.
Good, assuming no strings are attached.
Good from USA? What planet are you residing on these days?

Hopefully most of these scholarships are awarded in hard sciences like Maths, Engineering, Agriculture, Physics etc and not social sciences that reproduce Nida Kirmanis and like, and send them to Pakistan

But I have a different hunch, alas!

Perhaps the women will decide to stay in the US. The US does have a long history of poaching educated and intelligent people. NOPE read to the end. Says they will learn in Pakistan.

Please give me better than a chomu Youtuber. Pakistani current affairs youtubers are the bottom of the barrel. Journalism ki aakhri khurchan.

will nida kirmani waving a LGBTQ+ flag suffice whenever she will pull the stunt in the future? sorry I don't waste time with established merasi journalists whom are habitual liars + morally/ethically/intellectually corrupt and sell their services to external powers.

They will take the money and will do nothing.

The money will be returned to American taxpayers one way or the other but average Pakistani will come off poorer from this than before.

In other news. Congress passed a bill seeking to revoke Pakistan's non-NATO ally status. I leave it to you to guess what comes after this.
