US Helps India To Set Up 100 Community Colleges

US An Helping Hand For India
United States leads an helping hand for India to set up 100 Community colleges. It was a long time goal for India to establish them under a new area of collaboration.


Jennifer Mcintyre, Councel General of US Consulate, Chennai who participated at the Founder's Day celebration of the Mohamed Sathak College of Engineering said that "US also supports India's launch of a high education web portal to disseminate information on education collaboration and exchanges".

"I expect the number of college and university representatives visiting India to increase manifold in future", she added.

However, the US representatives were seeking to increase international student enrollment to prepare their graduates for better leadership in the new global economy.

She further said " About a year ago eight grants were awarded for joint studies in the fields of Energy, sustainable community development, Environment, Education and Public health of which three were given to South Indian institutions".

"India has the largest number of full-bright scholar exchange Programmes worldwide with more than 17,000 fellowships and other grants awarded to Indians and Americans. The goal of preparing our youth to meet the challenges of the 21st Century is the one that the US and India share", she said.

Jennifer infact suggested people in faraway areas like Kilakari contact USIEF (United States India Educational Foundation) through the consul website in order to get information on education opportunities in the United States.
