Each year, there is one Scholarship available in Pakistan to enable an outstanding student – chosen on the basis of exceptional intellect, character, leadership, and commitment to service – to study at the University of Oxford.
Scholar from Pakistan:
The first Rhodes Scholar from Pakistan took up residence in Oxford in 1951, and since that time more than 60 citizens of Pakistan have been awarded this prestigious scholarship. They have pursued a variety of careers in public service, academia, business, law, and medicine, amongst others. Many have achieved notable distinction, including:
Professor Shaukat Hameed Khan, a nuclear-laser physicist who is a Fellow of the Pakistan Academy of Sciences and was the rector of Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology (GIKI).
Neurosurgeon Ayub K. Ommaya, the inventor of the Ommaya Reservoir, which is used to provide chemotherapy directly to the tumour site for brain tumours;
Wasim Sajjad, who served as interim President of Pakistan on two occasions. He serves in the Senate of Pakistan, where he has until recently been Opposition Leader in the Senate.
Selection Criteria Details:
The selection committee typically meet in Lahore or Islamabad before December, and the Rhodes Trust will pay travel expenses for those candidates who are summoned to interview. The Secretary for the Rhodes Scholarships in Pakistan may be contacted at:
