Peshawar, the cultural and financial capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is home to some of the most famous archaic landmarks and traditional delicacies. Not only are the people exceptionally hospitable but are always ready to lend a helping hand to all those who visit. The National Outreach Programme team visited the cities of Peshawar, Charsadda, Risalpur, Nowshera, Kohat and Mardan from October 21 to 25, 2019 to spread the word about the scholarship. The team visited 16 colleges and reached over 600 students.

During the information sessions that took place, students were informed about the National Outreach Programme (NOP) scholarship and were walked through the state-of-the-art facilities at LUMS. During the Q&A sessions that followed, the eligibility criteria for the NOP Summer Coaching Session (SCS) as well as the application process were discussed. A highlight of this visit was coming across those students who had attended the NOP Summer Coaching Session in previous years and were extremely passionate about motivating their peers for the same.

The College Administrators appreciated the NOP team for reaching out to them and sharing information about the scholarship. Ms. Shahana Raziq, Administrator, Islamia School for Girls, Peshawar said that the session was extremely informative and would benefit the students of her institution. Mr. Mirza Azad, Administration Head, Punjab Group of Colleges, Nowshera remarked that the NOP can prove to be a life changing opportunity for students and vowed to motivate his students to apply for the scholarship.
