The National Secretary of the Rhodes Scholarship in Pakistan: shaping the next generation of leaders

We interviewed esteemed Islamabad High Court judge Babar Sattar about his multifaceted career, which includes roles as a lawyer at the Supreme Court of Pakistan and a distinguished law professor.

Sattar was awarded the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship to study at the University of Oxford in 1999 and also received his Master of Laws (LLM) from Harvard Law School. He currently serves as the National Secretary of the Rhodes Scholarships in Pakistan and oversees the scholarship selection process. In this role, Sattar imparts his wisdom to pave the way for a new generation of scholars and leaders in the country.

In this exclusive interview, we delve deeper into his ideas, experiences and aspirations to discover the profound impact he envisions for Rhodes Scholars and the future of Pakistan.

Q1: Could you share some ideas about the criteria and qualities you look for in potential candidates?
A: The Rhodes Scholarship has 61 constituencies on five continents, including one global constituency, meaning students from anywhere in the world can apply. Our application process ensures a dynamic and inclusive selection of academics. Academic brilliance is, of course, essential, but equally crucial is the character of an academic, which must resonate with the spirit of the Rhodes Trust: inspirational leadership, service for a better world and belief in performance.

The selection process is demanding but, more importantly, it is a process that facilitates self-reflection. Many candidates, especially those who make it to the final interview, tell us that our rigorous selection process is a deeply positive experience that helps them prepare to pursue a Rhodes Scholarship or take advantage of other opportunities around the world.

Q2: Can you share some memorable experiences from your time as an academic?

And how has your personal experience influenced your approach to mentoring and selecting fellows in Pakistan?
A: I was not awarded the scholarship the first year I applied. I learned from the selection process and returned the following year with a better resume and more determination. Earning the Rhodes Scholarship taught me that the program recognizes and rewards hard work and perseverance. Arriving at Rhodes House in 1999 and meeting a group of extraordinary people from all over the world earned me the Rhodes Scholarship. My year was a lesson in humility. But realizing that I was part of this successful group gave me confidence at the same time. Becoming a Rhodes Scholar led to many lifelong connections and impactful moments. Even now, there are regular alumni gatherings that become not just reunions, but forums for discussion and an opportunity to develop genuine friendships. My journey has fueled my commitment to mentoring academics who contribute to a global community, echoing the true spirit of the Rhodes Trust.

Q3: What trends or changes have you seen in the aspirations and career paths of Rhodes Scholarship applicants over the years and how has the selection process adapted to these changes?
A: There is no prototype Rhodes Scholar. Career aspirations are always evolving. We have civil servants, academics, scientists, lawyers and doctors, to name a few, who are part of our Rhodes family. Lately, we have seen Rhodes Scholar alumni pursue purpose-driven careers, pursuing jobs at think tanks, charities and non-profits, as well as careers in STEM. Witnessing this, especially among Pakistani applicants, is inspiring.

Pakistani alumni are among the academics seeking purpose-driven careers. One notable alumna who comes to mind is Tanyah Hameed, who has made impactful contributions to public policy in areas such as children’s social care, mental health and employment, COVID-19 adaptation, and refugee support . Rafiullah Kakar, a native of Balochistan, is another; He works for the Pakistan Planning Commission and is making his mark by contributing to the public policy debate around issues of inclusion. This is what the Rhodes Scholarship is all about: empowering future leaders in fields that are catalysts for positive change.

Q4: In your role, you are involved in training Pakistan’s future leaders and scholars through the Rhodes Scholarship. What impact do you hope these fellows will have on the country and beyond?

A: The impact of Rhodes Scholars is not measured in degrees or titles but in the tangible changes that scholars and alumni bring to their communities, countries, and the world at large. For example, Khansa Maria is a Pakistani Rhodes Scholar who is passionate about advocating for disability rights and creating accessible and inclusive communities.

This year marked the 75th anniversary of the Rhodes Scholarship in Pakistan. Over the years, Pakistani Rhodes Scholars have created an impactful legacy; Alumni include a former acting president and president of the Senate, a university vice-chancellor, a judge, senior professors and authors, and leaders from sectors such as public administration, education, business, science, medicine, arts and culture. policy.

Q5: Can you share some success stories of Rhodes Scholars from Pakistan and how these stories reflect the aims and values of the Rhodes Trust Scholarship programme?
A: Rhodes Scholars are known to help create diverse communities and a better future for all. I think Pakistani students really embrace this spirit. Waseem Sajjad, acting president and longest-serving Senate President, was also Pakistan’s longest-serving Rhodes Scholarship national secretary. Dr. Ali Cheema is the Vice-Chancellor of one of the leading Pakistani universities and generously dedicates his time to recruitment. Osama Siddique and Aqil Shah are highly respected academics and authors. Scholars such as Rafiullah Kakar, Khansa Mariah and Tanyah Hameed are among those who tirelessly advocate for equity.

More recently, Asmer Safi and Iman Iftikhar were selected as Pakistani Rhodes Scholars for the class of 2024. Asmer specializes in South Asian political thought, while Iman has dedicated herself to studying history, philosophy and art. Asmer and Iman exemplify Rhodes Scholars’ commitment to social progress and showcase the diversity that defines the Rhodes Trust. I am excited to see how this next generation of scholars (and those of generations to come) continue to contribute to the community of Rhodes Scholars, Pakistan, and the world at large. Perhaps the most recent success of the scholarship in Pakistan is the awarding of a second scholarship during the program’s 75th year in the country. This will create more opportunities for Pakistan’s youth to join a lifelong community, united by a commitment to making a positive impact on the world.
