Inspired by the passion of helping their alma mater in the noble cause of providing equitable opportunities of higher education to the financially underprivileged, LUMS BSc Class of 2008, initiated a fundraising drive within their community a couple of months ago. Commitment, diligence and passion paid off and the class was able to generate a substantial amount of money in a relatively short period of time.
A formal agreement was signed between LUMS and BSc Class of 2008 at the Islamabad Chapter Reunion on September 15, 2017. Present at the ceremony were the graduates on BSc 2018 including Mr. Ammar Khalid Mehmood, Fund Representative and Ms. Ayesha Bilal, while Prof. Dr. S. Sohail H. Naqvi, Vice Chancellor LUMS and members of the Development and Alumni Relations Teams represented LUMS.
Under this scholarship, PKR 1 Million, will be disbursed annually, among needy but academically bright individuals inducted at LUMS through the National Outreach Programme. Dr. Naqvi thanked the BSc Class of 2008 for this great initiative and stressed on the need of increasing alumni participation in fundraising and advancement efforts.
