NUST has around 35% of first-generation students, i.e. Whose parents were never enrolled for higher education. Such a large proportion of students at the campus speaks of our contribution towards bringing out an increasing number of families from poverty.
NUST aims to be a need-blind university, affording education to all those who make it to the university on merit. In this respect, NUST looks after the financial needs of the students from underprivileged and underrepresented groups from all across the country, through partnerships with NUST alumni, private donors, and government agencies for funding. More than 1800 students are studying on need-based scholarships in NUST since 2015, and 127 of the targeted 400 seats have been made free for scholars through a permanent endowment.
