LUMS alumni are constantly thinking of ways to give back to their university; funding infrastructure, conducting mock interviews, mentoring fresh graduates, facilitating recruitment, giving corporate discountsetc.

In 2002, the MBA Class of ‘89 started the trend of creating class funds to support the LUMS' vision of providing quality education to the deserving youth of the country. Since then, 21 classes from the LUMS MBA and BSc programmes have created class fundssupporting the education of deserving students. Most of these classes have established endowments to support students enrolled in the LUMS National Outreach Programme (NOP).

Since the initiation of the class funds, 23 deserving undergraduate students have received education at LUMS. Seventeen students have already graduated and six are still enrolled. These beneficiaries belong to various cities of Pakistan such as Taxila, Dera Ismail Khan, Multan, Burewala, WahCantt, Lahore and Kasur.

Imtiaz Ahmad is currently enrolled in the LUMS ACF Programme (Class of 2017). Hailing from Kasur, he did his matriculation from AllamaIqbal Cadet Public High School,Kasur and went on to do his Intermediate from Punjab College Lahore. Imtiaz said about his term at LUMS,  "I got to know about the National Outreach Programme (NOP) through a newspaper and it was my dream to get into LUMS. Now  I am here, enjoying the great environment for studies that the university has to offer. The educational system here has the most rigorous routines that help me organise and store information in my mind. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the MBA class of 2002 for sponsoring my education at LUMS."

Malik Awais Khan graduated from LUMS in 2013. Awais Khan expressed his LUMS experience in these words: "My time at LUMS gave me exceptional exposure; exposure to a diverse culture, where I acquainted myself with people across Pakistan. This has been key to shaping my future goals.I graduated as an ACF major with a CGPA of 3.3, and I plan to pursue CFA. My future plans are to deal in equity markets or in the public sector.It is imperative to mention that I'm very grateful to my sponsors, the MBA class of ‘99; their generous and kind contribution has helped me through the LUMS undergraduate programme."

Friends of LUMS, especially alumni have been instrumental in influencing the lives of bright, deserving individuals by providing them a chance to gain world class education, right here in Pakistan.  This generosity not only shapes the destiny of individuals but also the future of the whole nation.
