Undergraduate Merit Scholarships

LUMS not only recognizes students' good academic performance but also distinguishes high achievers by providing them generous Merit scholarships. If you are a high achiever, LUMS wants you to accomplish everything you possibly can. Exemplary students are selected to receive LUMS Merit Scholarships on the basis of their outstanding academic performance.


Merit Scholarships are a form of gift aid and do not need to be repaid. LUMS provides Merit Scholarship Awards to students who have proven their ability to succeed academically. 

First Year

100 scholarships are available to support the academic aspirations of prospective top ranked undergraduate students based on the LUMS admission evaluation ranking.


For the first year, Merit scholarship awards cover partial to full tuition fee for One (1) year and are awarded to the top students of admitted batch in each school. There is no separate application for the scholarship. Students are automatically considered for the award when they apply for admission to LUMS.

Subsequent Years

Merit scholarship awards cover partial to full tuition fee for one year only and are awarded to the returning batches who are placed on Dean's Honour List based on their academic performance. The number of scholarships is each Programme and Class may vary according to the approved policy of particular academic year.


Note: In case a student qualifies for both financial aid award and any other scholarship, he/she will receive the higher aid benefit. These awards are for one (1) year only and cannot be carried forward to subsequent years.
