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. There is no separate application for the scholarship. Students are automatically considered for the award when they apply for admission to LUMS.


Merit scholarships will be awarded to the top 10% students admitted to each of the following Master of Science (MS) Programmes;


  • Business and Public Policy
  • Healthcare Management & Innovation
  • Technology Management & Entrepreneurship

The Merit scholarship will be given in the form of 50% Tuition fee waiver.


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