I am excited and honored to begin my doctoral studies at Cambridge as part of the Gates community,” said Riaz, who is a Karachi University graduate and has also completed her MS in Genetics from the Iowa State University on a Fulbright scholarship.

The Gates Cambridge Scholarship programme was established in October 2000 by a donation of US$210m from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to the University of Cambridge; this is the largest ever single donation to a UK university.

Shahzad, who carried out undergraduate research at Lahore University of Management Sciences on Urdu women’s digests aims to further investigate these digests through her MPhil in Modern South Asian Studies.

Khan, a Karachitte, shares that his native city has motivated him to pursue a career in public service.

“I join Cambridge as a Gates scholar this year for the MPhil Public Policy programme, to undertake academic training in the finer crafts of policy making and practice. I am honoured to represent some of the finest institutions in Pakistan, including my alma mater Qauid-i-Azam University (QAU), the Sustainable Development Policy Institute, and the Jinnah Institute,” Khan said.
