ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The US Mission Pakistan is excited to announce the start of the US-Pakistan Women’s Council’s (USPWC) inaugural four-week Future of Women in Energy Scholars Program. 

Starting June 5, 17 bright Pakistani women university students will participate in this certificate program to learn about working in the energy sector.


This program will foster women’s participation and leadership in Pakistan’s energy sector by providing young women the opportunity to study energy issues and energy infrastructure at Texas A&M University’s Campus in Qatar.

Following their two-week program in Qatar, the students will return to Pakistan for a two-week familiarization trip to engage with key Pakistani public and private-sector organizations in Islamabad and Lahore to learn about Pakistan’s energy sector.

The program is jointly sponsored by the US Mission Pakistan, the US Department of State, the US Department of Energy, the US Agency for International Development (USAID), Texas A&M University, and a number of public-sector and private-sector energy employers interested in promoting women’s advancement in the energy sector.

The program is a product of the commitment the US government made to advance women’s educational and economic participation in Pakistan’s energy sector during the US-Pakistan Energy Dialogue in September 2021.

The Pakistani women students participating in the program are currently pursuing bachelor’s degrees in science and engineering at private and public universities throughout Pakistan and were chosen through a rigorous selection process.

The US Ambassador to Pakistan Donald Blome said, “Coinciding with the 75th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the United States and Pakistan, we are excited to launch the USPWC’s Future of Women in Energy Scholars Program. Through this program, the US Mission in Pakistan is helping Pakistani women to pursue career opportunities in the energy sector and help them develop networks for a vibrant future.”

The USPWC Executive Director Radhika Prabhu said, “The USPWC Future of Women in Energy Scholars Program will give young women hands-on experience in the energy sector.  Congratulations to these future leaders!”

The US-Pakistan Women’s Council is a public-private partnership that seeks to increase women’s economic participation in Pakistan by catalyzing commitments from the private sector, civil society, and government leaders in both countries to advance women’s economic empowerment in Pakistan.
