“I genuinely believe that an education from LUMS equips you to compete successfully at a global stage; it teaches you how to achieve your dreams. I am one of the many who benefited from the generosity of donors and it is only fair that we give back, so that this world class launch-pad of dreams continues to grow from strength to strength.”Mr. Kamal M. Amjad Mian
“The National Outreach Programme is an excellent initiative for imparting education to students from underrepresented segments of Pakistani society, and Fast Cables is proud to partner with LUMS in assisting these students in achieving their dreams for the uplift of their families and communities. We are very impressed with the Financial Aid process, transparency and clarity of purpose exhibited by LUMS.”Mr. Musadaq Zulqarnain
“LUMS complements Interloop’s belief that education should be a basic right for everyone. We have established an Endowment Fund at the University, providing 8 perpetual scholarships to deserving undergraduate students under the NOP Scholarship, and will continue to invest in the intellectual capital of Pakistan.”Mr. Ahsan Ejaz
LUMS is beyond a doubt, one of the most prestigious universities in Pakistan. An education from here opens up a lot of doors for successful future prospects. These prospects should not be available only to those who can afford them but to the brightest minds of the country and LUMS is instrumental in making sure that happens.Mr. Aneeq Cheema
My classmates and I came together in the memory of our lost friends to create the Waheeb and Rafia BSc Class of 2010 Endowment Fund. We all galvanised not only in their memory, but also because we wanted to leave a legacy that would last beyond our lifetimesMr. Shehryar Butt
Our class was one of the first BSc classes to graduate from LUMS. We are all where we are today because of the foundation we received at here. The University is recognised globally for its values and educational excellence and we are the ambassadors who have contributed towards its present stature. It is now our responsibility to give back to the institution that enabled us to achieve our goals, and to enable the next class of ambassadors who will raise the bar even higher.Shazad Dada
United Bank Limited has supported various initiatives at LUMS. In 2019, we donated to the National Outreach Programme to fund 14 students. We are confident that these deserving scholars will become Pakistan’s future business leaders and influencers.Tara Uzra Dawood
Pakistan State Oil CSR Trust is proud to join LUMS in making a difference through quality higher education for those who cannot afford it. The support shall allow talented and deserving students from underserved areas to attend LUMS through its National Outreach Programme.Dr. Hassan Jalil Shah
LUMS is a key partner under the USAID-funded Merit and Needs-Based Scholarship Program to support talented students. The objective is to provide a level field to all students to study at one of the top private universities in Pakistan. The Higher Education Commission is pleased that the investment made at LUMS is making a positive contribution towards the country’s development.Dr. Saba A. Chughtai, M.D.
We are a non-profit volunteer organisation, established to mobilise individuals with an interest in the welfare of disadvantaged people in Pakistan. We believe that everyone deserves an education, access to quality healthcare and the opportunity to live in peace regardless of their socio-economic status. We support LUMS because we believe that equal access to education is the best way to deal with global poverty and promote global peace.Ahsan Sheikh
We want to give back to our alma mater because it has had a great impact on our lives and helped us reach where we are today.Masooma Zeeshan
I appreciate and value the difference LUMS made in my personal development and the professional opportunities I got in the beginning of my career. But most of all, I admire the National Outreach Programme which enables talented students from humble backgrounds from all over the country to benefit from quality education. The impact of the programme in the lives of the scholars is far reaching and often creates a ripple effect where more students from the same village or city apply to LUMS the following year.Mr. Aamir Syedain
"Economic success results from a series of accidents, beginning with that of birth. Justice can only be achieved by socialising opportunity. In a society where education is still a privilege, an immense debt is owed to the disadvantaged. Enabling talent from underprivileged homes at higher levels changes destinies of families; who in turn pay it forward. I am thankful to LUMS for instituting it’s brilliant National Outreach Programme."Mr. Masood Siddiqui
"LUMS helps me fulfil my need of contribution to higher education by providing a clear and transparent mechanism, where I can contribute with confidence. The systems in place at LUMS ensure disbursement of funds to needy but very talented students across Pakistan. LUMS constantly provides me with updates on how the money is spent, giving me warm, comfortable feelings that the money is being spent in the right place. LUMS team keep up the good work, you are changing Pakistan slowly but surely for a better tomorrow!"Mr. Mumtaz Khan
"I have always believed that a country cannot make progress unless the majority of the population gets good education. And higher education is part of this package. My reason for supporting LUMS is very straightforward. LUMS is probably the best higher education institution in Pakistan and has consistently maintained high academic standards. The Trustees and the faculty have done a tremendous job in pursuing an excellent academic tradition, which is much admired all over Pakistan."Mr. Ahmad Mian
"My immense regard for Syed Babar Ali sahib, the credibility of the institution and the quality of its graduates is what makes it so close to my heart. It gives me a great sense of pride to see LUMS graduates compete with the Ivy League graduates in such a competitive environment here. It is truly satisfying to see this and realise that my humble contribution has probably touched someone’s life and helped them achieve their dream.....and that is what makes life worthwhile."
Your support helps transform the lives of our students and their communities. Watch how one National Outreach Programme scholar’s time at LUMS enabled him to evolve into a successful entrepreneur.
