External Scholarships

The University has tried its level best to raise funds to ensure that no deserving candidate is turned away from the programme due to insufficient funds. Since inception, external donors have played an immense role in achieving this milestone.


There are a number of named scholarships available for graduate students. LUMS supporters include individuals and organizations from all over the world. These scholarships can potentially help students cover the costs of education and related expenses (i.e. books, accommodation and living). The eligibility depends upon a number of factors, all of which are specified by the donor who offers the scholarships.


In order to be considered for any kind of external scholarships, students are required to apply for financial aid at the time of applying for admission at LUMS. 


LUMS consistently strives to make its educational programmes accessible to talented students regardless of their ability to pay. We are proud to be the only institute in Pakistan offering the Asian Development Bank-Japan Scholarship Program (ADB-JSP) through which students can benefit from our highly experiential MBA programme.


Under this scholarship scheme, the University in collaboration with ADB-JSP provides ADB’s developing members in Asia and the Pacific to pursue postgraduate studies in management at the Suleman Dawood School of Business.
