The graduates of BSc Class of 2010 initiated an endowment fund for undergraduate students at LUMS to commemorate their beloved class mate, late Waheeb Alam, who passed away in a tragic road accident. The endowment fund will support studies of scholars coming from financially modest backgrounds.
The MOU between LUMS and representatives of BSc Class of 2010 was signed on June 21, 2017. The endowment, to be established with a funding of PKR 14 Million, will be used to provide 100% tuition fee waiver to one financially challenged undergraduate scholar in perpetuity.
Present at the ceremony were Prof. Dr. S. Sohail H. Naqvi, Vice Chancellor LUMS, Mr. Ali Safdar Raja, Head of Development at LUMS, Mr. Aneeq Cheema, the focal person for the BSc Class of 2010 Endowment Fund and other graduates of the class including Ms. Shaza Fatima, Ms. Marva Mushtaq, Mr. Ali Zain Shaikh, Mr. Ahmed Salman Tariq, Mr. Uzair Tariq and Mr. Hashim Bin Rashid.

He also stressed on the need of strong alumni engagement and participation in raising funds for the University.
