"The mentorship program I found through Elliott's Graduate School Services is precisely the kind of opportunity I was looking for when I traveled to the US all the way from Pakistan as a Fulbright scholar. The program will prepare me for the critical, front-line work on youth-led, community-centered peace-building in the Pakistani society."
