LUMS National Outreach Program (NOP)
Deadline for NOP Applications: March 5,2019
If you are a brilliant and aspiring young student who excels academically yet is constricted by financial circumstances, then the LUMS National Outreach Programme (NOP) is for you! We aim to bring the brightest minds together from every corner of Pakistan to study at LUMS on full scholarship. Since its establishment in 2001, the NOP has successfully instated more than 1,100 brilliant students and continues to facilitate many more annually. Almost 540 graduated students have gone out to achieve, thrive and make an impact in their communities.
• The NOP team visits schools/colleges in various cities, towns and villages all over Pakistan to give presentations about the LUMS National Outreach Programme.
• Students send their online applications for the NOP Summer Coaching Session to LUMS and the shortlisted students are invited on campus in the summer to experience university life.
• Students hoping to attain the NOP scholarship apply for admission at LUMS along with other regular students.
• Students take the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) which is funded by the NOP Centre.
A student from anywhere in Pakistan can apply if they meet the criteria of marks and financial need. There are no separate seats/quota for students based on region, ethnicity and/or extracurricular activities.
• At least 80% marks in Matric or equivalent in O Levels
• Financial need
The students shortlisted on the above criteria are invited to the NOP Summer Coaching Session, where they are examined through different exercises and tests. Students are evaluated on their performance at the Summer Coaching Session and are registered for the entrance test, completely paid for by LUMS. Finally, students who apply to LUMS and qualify on merit are offered admission on full scholarship.
All students, irrespective of whether they apply directly or through the NOP, are evaluated on the same admission criteria. While assessing financial need, a review committee ensures transparency in the process of awarding scholarships to all those who qualify for admission.
HOW TO APPLY:
Students who meet the eligibility criteria can apply through the following process:
