Syed Umair Ahmed Andrabi and Saiyed Naseer Husain Jafri, students from Jamia Millia Islamia are chosen by the University of Rochester for the Global Engagement Program. They also cleared the Institutional Research Board (IRB) exam. These two students will now attend a series of meetings to formalize their proposed initiative. They are now also eligible to take up research projects in the United States.
Syed Umair Ahmed Andrabi and Saiyed Naseer Husain Jafri founded a non-profit organisation called Foundation for Academia Innovation and Thought (F.A.I.T.H). This organisation first started a law journal - South Asian Journal of Law, Policy, and Social Research to bridge the gap between other disciplines and law in South Asia.
The objective of F.A.I.T.H. is to utilize the power of international and interdisciplinary scholarship to solve right injustices and conflict. They also aim to start an incubator fund which will finance social justice projects relevant to South Asia.
The students of Jamia have coordinated successfully with the graduates and undergraduates from the US to stay and work alongside all the interns or volunteers in South Asia under their collaboration program for international students.
The collaboration between Jamia students and the University of Rochester will offer diverse cultural perspectives which will enlighten the students and the scholars and give them new ideas. This collaboration will also foster connections between international scholars and students and provide relevant research opportunities.
