“I graduated from LUMS in 2014. I belong to a small village near Faisalabad. The National Outreach Programme was a life changing experience for me. It not only allowed me to study in one of the best institutes in Pakistan but also gave me the opportunity to meet wonderful mentors and friends. The NOP isn’t an ordinary deal. It’s a fully funded scholarship where you not only get academic scholarship but also the living expenses. This allows students to focus more on their academics and career rather than worrying about the financial aspects of living. LUMS provides enriching experience inside the class, generous scholarship like NOP, opportunities for academic research and amazing mentors. My life has definitely changed for the better thanks to the LUMS NOP.”
Today, Ali Raza is working as a researcher at New York University-Abu Dhabi. He is one of the true examples of how the National Outreach Programme is helpful for students who come from the remote backgrounds and go on to do remarkable things simply on the basis of their passion.
