In his last week in office, US President Donald Trump has signed into law an act that would award at least 50 percent of scholarships under a merit-based higher education scholarship program to Pakistani women. The new act is named after Malala Yousafzai. Earlier this month, the US Congress passed the proposed law and sent it to the White House for the president to sign.“On Jan 13, the President signed into law the Malala Yousafzai Scholarship Act, which directs the US Agency for International Development (USAID) to award at least 50 percent of Merit and Needs-Based Scholarship Programme scholarships to Pakistani women,” said a statement issued by the White House.
