Education is clearly one of the most important investments we make in our own and our children’s lives. Parents and students are advised to carefully understand the cost structure accordingly. LUMS is proud to offer generous financial assistance to a large proportion of its qualifying students, which range from partial to full coverage of tuition and living costs. While LUMS makes every effort to assist its students, it cannot guarantee financial assistance and all awards are reassessed each academic year based on performance, need and prevailing University policies.
