The inaugural Asma Jahangir Scholarship was awarded to Sana Gul by the British High Commissioner.
This annual scholarship, which was launched earlier this year, honours the legacy of the late human rights champion Asma Jahangir.
Each year the scholarship will be awarded to the top-ranking female applicant in the competitive recruitment process.
Presenting the new scholarship, the British High Commissioner Thomas Drew said:
“It is an honour to mark the extraordinary legacy of Asma Jahangir by awarding this new scholarship to the top Pakistani female Chevening scholar. Asma Jahangir was a remarkable woman. She was a champion of human rights and fought for the rights of women, children and oppressed people.
