Directory of

Commonwealth
Scholars and
Fellows:
1959-2009
When Commonwealth education ministers, at their first ever
conference in 1959, approved plans for a new scholarship
programme between member states, they could not have
imagined the impact of their decision. 50 years on, over
26,000 individuals have benefited from the Commonwealth
Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP). Many have
gone on to be leaders in their chosen field.
This Directory represents the most comprehensive
record of these achievements. It contains some
3,700 career profiles of alumni, and the names,
countries and years of over 25,000, from every
corner of the Commonwealth.
In addition to recording their achievements, the
Directory aims to be a tool for further networking
and collaboration, building on the extensive
professional networks and communications systems
already in place. It is intended to be used extensively
by international organisations, governments and
alumni themselves, to further collaboration, careers
and the wider objectives of the Plan.
The CSFP is exceptional amongst international
scholarship schemes, in that it is regularly reviewed by a
ministerial conference. As education ministers celebrate the
50th anniversary of the Plan in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in
June 2009, the Directory aims to provide valuable evidence
which will help them match the foresight of their predecessors.

Foreword
The decision of Commonwealth Education Ministers, at their first conference in 1959, to
establish a programme of scholarships and fellowships said much about their aspirations for
the newly expanded Commonwealth. Even the most optimistic, however, could not have
anticipated the long-term benefits of their foresight.
50 years later, the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP) has supported
some 26,000 individuals. Citizens from all Commonwealth countries have benefited, while
over 20 countries have hosted awards. The overwhelming majority have returned to their home
country to make a huge difference. Many have risen to the very highest ranks of their chosen
professions.
The CSFP has become one of the cornerstones of Commonwealth collaboration. It is another
of the most distinctive Commonwealth ‘brand names’. A huge debt of thanks is due to the
United Kingdom, which undertook to be the largest contributor in 1959 and whose support
remains vital. But thanks are also due to countries such as Canada, where the idea for the
scheme originated, and to India and New Zealand, who with Canada have been among the
most consistent contributors. We are in debt to all those countries which have supported
awards. The numbers may not have been as great, but the ability of students from, say, Africa
to study in Malaysia, Brunei, or the Caribbean says much about the relevance of the modern
Commonwealth.
This new Directory of alumni is a unique testament to these achievements. The number of
career profiles has doubled since the first edition produced in 2003, and the number of names
listed has increased from 20,000 to over 25,000. The essential message of the first Directory,
though, is reinforced. Commonwealth Scholarships have been a wonderful investment,
producing real leaders. I hope that governments and Commonwealth agencies will make use
of the contacts provided to involve our alumni still further.
In June 2009, at the 17th Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers in Kuala Lumpur,
Education Ministers will consider proposals to take the CSFP into its next half century. These
will aim to make the Plan even more international, flexible and relevant than ever, with a new
endowment fund to be set up to allow more low and middle income countries to host scholars.
We are calling the appeal the ‘once in a lifetime’ appeal: we will make one approach to new
donors, and offer one, magnificent, once-in-a-lifetime chance for those who win awards, and
thereby see a world of opportunity unfolding. It is a huge task, but Ministers have given us
firm foundations on which to build. We can only ask that they show as much foresight as their
predecessors of fifty years ago.

Preface
Scholarship providers have never been under greater pressure to demonstrate the impact of their investment.
Following the subsequent careers of award holders, through alumni programmes, is an obvious route to meeting this
need.
This, the second edition of the Directory of Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows, provides more evidence about the
progress of former Commonwealth Scholars than has ever been assembled in one place before. The pages that follow
contain some 3,700 career profiles of former award holders, and the names and dates of 25,000.
The Directory will be of immense use to national governments, the Commonwealth Secretariat and other
Commonwealth and international organisations in identifying former award holders and possibly involving them in
their work. What, though, does it tell us about the wider impact of the scheme?
What does the Directory tell us?
Governments offer scholarships for a variety of reasons. When the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan
(CSFP) was established at the first ever Commonwealth education conference in 1959, it was intended first and
foremost to support individuals. Awards would ‘recognise and promote the highest level of intellectual achievement’.
Subsequently, some donor countries have aligned their awards more closely to international development objectives.
Others have actively sought to identify ‘future leaders’ – individuals whose friendship and influence would be useful
to the host country in future years. More recently, as global competition for talent has intensified, host governments
have seen scholarships as a way of maintaining the international profile of their universities and even attracting
highly qualified individuals in the long term.
All of these factors play a role in Commonwealth Scholarships and Fellowships. Canada, for example, has in recent
years introduced postdoctoral fellowships to its portfolio, an idea also being trialled in South Africa. The United
Kingdom has added distance learning awards and short-term fellowships for mid-career professionals to its
longstanding support for postgraduate work. This flexibility is welcome, and was anticipated by the founders in
1959, in their far-sighted statement that the Plan should be sufficiently flexible to respond to future needs.
It is fair to say that, over the 50 years of their existence, the objectives of Commonwealth Scholarships and
Fellowships have moved more towards those of society than the individual. The emphasis on individual merit,
however, remains strong – and rightly so. However objectives may change, they are most likely to be achieved by
individuals with high academic merit, combined with the motivation and the ability to make a real difference.
Insistence on qualities such as these, combined with rigorous selection procedures, is largely responsible for the
reputation that Commonwealth Scholarships enjoy today.
Higher education is the largest single career for alumni under the scheme. This is not surprising, for a number of
reasons. The UK, in particular, reserves a proportion of its awards for young and mid-career academic staff from
developing countries, with the express intention that they should return to their home institutions following their
studies. For many recipient countries, universities are the obvious employer to best utilise high-quality talent.
Against this background, Commonwealth Scholarships can proudly boast that they have continually supported
higher education at a time – particularly in the late 1980s and 1990s – when the prevailing fashion amongst
development agencies was not to do so. The success of the scheme in so doing is one of the most strikingly obvious
features of the profiles listed in this volume.
Reading through the profiles, however, it is also clear that support for higher education contributes to a much wider
impact. Not only are CSFP alumni responsible for teaching presumably millions of the next generation, but their
research touches on virtually all areas of life. Hundreds of alumni, whose first career has been in academia, are used
by governments and international bodies as consultants or specialist advisers; many move in and out of government
during their careers. In a recent survey conducted by the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the United
Kingdom, 45% of the 2,226 respondents could cite at least one occasion on which they felt that they had influenced
the thinking or policies of their government.
viii
Yet it would be a huge mistake to regard the CSFP as primarily a means of supporting higher education. The profiles
in this Directory provide the best possible evidence that Commonwealth Scholarships produce leaders in all walks
of life – politics, civil service, law, business, journalism, literature and many, many more. And if this is true of the
alumni of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, it is perhaps even more likely to be true of the modern breed of Scholars. Not
only are selection committees now more likely to seek wider ‘leadership’ skills, but several of the new innovations,
such as undergraduate awards in Canada and professional fellowships in the UK, are much less focussed on academic
careers. Distance learning scholarships, introduced by the UK in 2002, explicitly target other careers of direct
relevance to international development objectives. Taking all this into account, it is likely that the proportion of
alumni in higher education will decline over the next decade, but that the overall number in the sector will remain
significant.
Less tangible, but also evident, is the impact on wider international relations. The recent UK analysis found that over
90% of the 2,226 respondents maintained some sort of link with contacts in the UK, a remarkable figure considering
many held their awards over 20 years ago. In total, 70% reported maintaining links with universities in the UK, 48%
with professional associations, and 72% with social contacts. These findings are supplemented by significant
anecdotal evidence. Perhaps even more striking are the records of the relatively small numbers of developed country
Scholars to have studied in developing Commonwealth countries under the scheme, most typically in the 1960s and
1970s, many of whom retain a strong international element throughout their careers – whether in diplomacy,
development or academia. That the number of such opportunities waned in the 1980s and 1990s, particularly with
the decline in higher education itself in Africa, was a huge loss to the scheme. The decision of Commonwealth
Education Ministers, at their triennial conference in Cape Town, South Africa, in 2006, to make the expansion of
awards in low and middle income countries a priority for the Plan’s 50th anniversary through the creation of an
endowment fund specifically for the purpose, is hugely welcome in this context.
An obvious indicator of impact is the extent to which Scholars and Fellows return to their home country after their
awards. Study abroad is sometimes cited as a cause of brain drain, and a recent UK report suggested that some 40%
of all postgraduate students aspire to stay following their study. Migration on this scale is not the experience of the
CSFP. As our samples have grown over the years, surveys of Commonwealth Scholars and Fellows who studied in
the UK have constantly shown a figure of 85-90% working in their home country or region. An analysis fromCanada
in 2003 placed the figure a little lower, but still well over two-thirds. In both cases, there is every expectation that
this figure will continue to be at least as high, due in no small part to the introduction of distance learning and short-
term undergraduate scholarships by the respective host countries. There is, moreover, increasing evidence that the
question of ‘whether the student has returned home’ is now too simplistic. An increasing number of talented people
now divide their careers between countries, whilst many of those not working in their home country at the time of
survey are still making huge contributions, often through research or working for international organisations.
A representative sample?
The career profiles presented in the Directory provide a striking testimony to the achievements of individual
Commonwealth Scholars. However, given that some 26,000 individuals have held such awards, and over 16,000 in
the UK alone, it is reasonable to ask whether the sample is a ‘representative’ one.
It is worth stressing that the profiles are not intended to be a ‘Who’s Who’ of only the most prestigious alumni, but
rather to include all of those for whom we have the necessary records and permission. Data protection laws in the
UK require that individual consent be given before any profile is published. In fact, the Commission’s alumni
programme is in contact with almost 6,000 alumni in total – including many highly prestigious figures for whom we
were unable to obtain the necessary consent in time for publication. It is also worth saying that, although the number
of profiles in this Directory is about double that in the 2003 version, the main trends – such as sector of employment
and country of origin – remain constant.
One bias that is fairly easy to detect, however, is that of age. Over half of the new profile entries completed their
awards since 2000. Most of these remain in early or mid career. This feature is likely to underplay, rather than
exaggerate, the achievements of the scheme, since it is reasonable to assume that the majority have yet to obtain
their most senior positions. In evaluating the impact of scholarships generally, it is important to recognise that, while
the cost of awards is incurred within a relatively short period of time, the benefits accrue over a much longer period.
ix
Secondly, the profiles listed here are primarily those of individuals who have held their Commonwealth Scholarships
or Fellowships in Canada or the UK. This reflects both the fact that these two countries have been the largest donors
to the Plan since its formation, and that they are the countries with the best developed alumni programmes. From the
‘Register’ section of the Directory, however, it will be seen that over 20 countries have offered awards at some stage
over the 50 years of the Plan, and that some, such as India and New Zealand, are consistent contributors. No
publication that fails to reflect this, or the contribution of other recent donors such as Jamaica, Brunei Darussalam,
South Africa, Ghana, Trinidad and Tobago and Malaysia, can fully reflect the diverse nature of the scheme. Happily,
a number of other countries are now developing their own alumni activity. Together with the increase in awards in
low and income countries anticipated following the 50th anniversary endowment fund appeal, we hope that this will
provide for greater representation in future.
Looking to the future
We believe that the Directory provides one of the most comprehensive records of any international scholarship
scheme ever produced. In many ways, however, it is intended to be starting point for other activities, rather than an
outcome in its own right.
The Directory will, we hope, be widely used by governments, their High Commissions, international organisations
and others to identify expertise and to maintain links, thus further increasing the impact of the programme. It will
also help national governments and individual universities in developing their own alumni programmes. The contacts
here also provide an excellent basis for more rigorous evaluation of the scheme, such as that on which the UK has
already embarked.
Knowledge of our alumni also opens opportunities for new forms of communication with and between them. In the
UK, an important feature of our alumni activity in recent years has been the development of networks based on
profession, rather than home country. Nine such networks exist at the time of writing – in gender; health; education;
governance, civil society and community development; environment; agriculture/rural development; science and
technology; law; and faiths and civil society. These provide an excellent basis for electronic networking on issues
directly relevant to the day-to-day careers of alumni, and are well supported. We look forward to developing these
networks further.
We hope, too, that the concrete evidence of the Directory will provide member governments of the Commonwealth
with the confidence to maintain and expand their own contributions. At a time when higher education is expanding,
and its contribution to wider economic and social goals is recognised more widely than ever, the potential of the
scheme has never been greater. It falls to Commonwealth Education Ministers, who meet for their 17th conference
in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in June 2009, to demonstrate the same foresight as their predecessors did at the first
such meeting 50 years ago.

Acknowledgements
The collection of data for this Directory, and its organisation into the format produced here, has been a substantial
exercise, spread over several months. Thanks are due to many individuals for contributing, in many cases fitting in
the time to do so alongside their other duties.
Within the UK, production was coordinated by Julie Stackhouse and Jocelyn Law. It was, however, a genuine team
effort involving ACUstaff at various stages, including Sabina Ebbols, Selina Hannaford, Sarah Humphreys, Jonathan
Jenkins, Natasha Lokhun, Nick Mulhern, Anna O’Flynn, James Ransom and Arvinder Sansoa. Editorial assistance
was provided by Matt Grange and Paul Turner, and support from Melanie Christou, Gina Evans, Anna Gane, Nicola
Seaton and Hannah Urbanczyk. The communications sub-committee of the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission
– Professor Tim Unwin, Dr Mark Collins, Dr Monica Darnbrough and Sir Brian Donnelly – also provided valuable
input.
The Canadian survey was coordinated by Jennifer Humphries, Diane Cyr, Natalia Amiel and colleagues at the
Canadian Bureau of International Education. That work was in turn facilitated by Chris Greenshields and Natalija
Marjanovic of the Department for Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT).
Additional tracing activities were undertaken by Eugenia Asare, Lem Atanga, Sulieman Fye, Dineo Ketshogileng,
Jackie Olang, Kay Raseroka and Jenny Unwin.
Updated information for the register was also provided by agencies in India, New Zealand, Malaysia and South
Africa.
DFAIT also made a valuable financial contribution to the final production, as did the Commonwealth Scholarship
Commission in the United Kingdom.
Thanks are due to all of the above, but perhaps our greatest gratitude should be reserved for the hundreds of
individuals throughout the world who have taken the time to complete their questionnaires, or provide information
regarding other alumni. It is their enthusiasm, most of all, which has made the project worthwhile.

Notes on the data
Profiles
This data has been compiled from questionnaires returned, mostly online, to the Commonwealth Scholarship
agencies in the UK and Canada. For studies in the UK, our existing information on the individual’s award has also
been used.
Country
The country given in brackets after an individual’s name refers to the country of nomination (which is not always
the same as country of origin).
Scheme
Commonwealth Scholar refers to all studies at undergraduate, Master’s or doctoral level, and includes early
postdoctoral research awards. Where studies were conducted by distance learning, this is indicated at the end of the
award information. Where the award was for a split-site PhD, the UK institution is included in the profile and the
home (degree-awarding) institution is indicated in square brackets at the end of the award information.
Commonwealth Fellow refers to continuing professional development awards, including those to academics for
training and research at postdoctoral level. Both categories contain other award types such as Medical Scholarships
and Medical Fellowships.
Course of study
For studies in the UK, degree, subject, institution and dates of award are taken from existing data and reflect what
our records show was studied while on award, and not necessarily qualifications gained. For award holders studying
in other countries, we have taken information on studies directly from respondents.
Institution
Institutions are generally referred to by their current names, which may have changed since the period of award.
Dates of study
Dates of study for those who studied in the UK mainly reflect our records of the period of the award, rather than the
period that the award holder was in the country. For those who studied in Canada, if an award holder has had two
awards and only one set of dates is shown, this includes both awards.
Currently/Previously
This refers to employment, other offices and memberships. Respondents were not specifically asked to provide
information in separate sections for current and previous positions so, as far as possible, this has been ascertained
from the data given on the questionnaire. In the case of reprinted profiles (see below), where a country is not stated,
posts and awards were usually held in the country of nomination.
Awards and Honours
Information in this section to some extent reflects what each individual has chosen to include in the questionnaire.
National awards and distinctions can be found in this section, rather than being included in the name of the individual.
Information omitted
For the sake of brevity, not all information given on questionnaires has been incorporated into the Directory.
Reprinted profiles
We have reprinted profiles that appeared in the 2003 edition of the Directory where the respondent did not reply to
requests to provide updated information for this edition, unless we have been notified that the individual is deceased.
These are marked with a *.
xiv
Register
This section lists the names of nearly all award holders under the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan.
This data is compiled from our records for studies in the UK, the Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan
reports up to 1992, and data provided by certain country agencies post-1992. The listing is not complete, as we do
not yet have data on all scholars studying in all countries post-1992.
Country
Award holders are listed by host country, followed by country of nomination. Countries are referred to by their
present names. However, in some cases, it was not possible to determine the corresponding individual present-day
location. For example, in some instances, the Plan reports listed a region or two countries combined. In the case of
pre-1971 award holders listed as nominated by Pakistan, it was not possible to determine whether they were from
what is now Bangladesh. Hong Kong was part of the Commonwealth until 1997. Some former protectorates are
included in the Plan reports that are not part of the present-day Commonwealth.
Names
Names were presented in different ways in the Plan reports, and in some case no forename was given. We have
incorporated changes of name where this is known.
Years
The year, which follows the name in brackets, in most cases refers to the year in which the award was made, and
may not always be the year in which the award holder travelled to their host country. Where we had sufficient
information to positively identify them, individuals holding more than one award are listed once with multiple years.
Profiles
The † symbol at the end of an entry indicates that this individual has an entry in the Profiles section of the Directory.
