U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday announced a new fellowship for students from Quad member countries to pursue advanced degrees in ‘stem programs’ in the United States.

In his opening remarks at the Quad Leaders’ Summit, Biden said “let me begin by saying I’m honored to welcome Prime Minister Morrison, Prime Minister Modi, and Prime Minister Suga and — to the White House for the first in-person meeting of the Quad we’ve had.”

This group meeting of democratic partners who share a world view and have a common vision for the future, coming together to take on key challenges of our age, from COVID to climate to emerging technologies, Biden said adding “It embodies an approach I spoke of at the U.N. earlier this week.”

“When we met six months ago, we made concrete commitments to advance our shared and positive agenda for a free and open Indo-Pacific. Today, I’m proud to say that we’re making excellent progress.”

He continued “Our vaccine initiative is on track to produce an additional 1 billion doses of vaccine in India to boost global supply. We’re taking action on climate change, with new partnership toward a zero-emissions shipping.”

Biden went on to say “Today, we’re also launching a new Quad fellowship for students from each of our Quad countries to pursue advanced degrees leading — in leading STEM programs here in the United States. It represents an investment in the leaders, innovators, and pioneers of tomorrow.”

He concluded “In sum, we are four major democracies with a long history of cooperation. We know how to get things done, and we are up to the challenge. And I’m looking forward to our discussion today, and I thank you.”
