National Outreach Programme

LUMS launched its National Outreach Programme (NOP) in 2001 to extend the benefits of world-class education to talented students all over Pakistan and thereby become a truly national university. This prestigious scholarship programme focuses on identifying bright students with exceptional Matriculation and FA/FSc results and inducting them into the LUMS Undergraduate Programmes. The scholars that qualify as NOP are given full financial assistance. LUMS is very proud of its NOP scholars: to date LUMS has benefitted 798 NOP students, 362 of whom have successfully graduated.
