Transform Lives: Support the Next Generation of Doctors​

At the Medical College, Pakistan we never want financial constraints to be a barrier to bright students accessing quality education. We are committed to ensuring that aspiring students from diverse backgrounds and geographies, many of whom have limited​ financial means, can call AKU home.

Thanks to generous donors, and with your support, the Medical College will expand its resource pool to continue to offer an even more affordable and transformative education to deserving students.

We invite you to make a gift to the Transform Lives scholarship campaign- Invest in the brilliance of MBBS students to support the medical ​leaders of tomorrow.​​

You may support the scholarships campaign at the Medical College with a gift of:

  • A Named Endowed Scholarships Fund (USD 100,000+)
  • A Named Scholarship (USD 5000 for the duration of the degree) – commitment of 5 years for the MBBS programme​

​​Named Endowed Scholarships

Endowed Scholarship Funds are invested and grow over time, as part of AKU's general endowment for scholarships, in perpetuity.   

We invite you to endow a Named Scholarship Fund for USD 100,000 in support of the flagship MBBS programme at the Medical College, Pakistan. The gift may be paid all at once or up to a period of five years. One year after the fulfilment of the gift, the endowment will yield an income that can be used to support scholarships.

Once the gift is fully paid, your generosity will be recognised by having your name included on the virtual AKU Scholarship Donor Wall. Your name will also be inscribed on the University's marble walls, upon receipt of an initial USD 50,000, creating a permanent legacy on campus.

Named Scholarships

Alternatively, we invite you to support an annual Named Scholarship for USD 5000 per year for the duration of a degree (eg. 5 years for the MBBS Programme). The scholarship will support a student with financial need, for the duration of their degree programme.

Your generosity will be recognised by having your name included on the virtual AKU Scholarship Donor Wall for the duration of your gift.

While this fundraising campaign is for Named Endowed Scholarships and Named Scholarships, we welcome any gift from those who may wish to support our medical students. Contributions of any amount will support Financial Assistance for Medical College students.

"The financial assistance I received from AKU enabled me to obtain the best medical education possible and provided the steppingstone for my entire career. AKU empowers its students to compete at a global level and achieve their highest potential. It does not limit admission for students who cannot afford the fees, and thus attracts the brightest students from all over the country, regardless of their background or financial circumstances.";.
