The Award


LUMS is pleased to announce this year’s Vice Chancellor’s Alumni Achievement Awards (VC-AAA) which will recognize outstanding alumni for their exemplary accomplishments across sectors, including contributions made and services rendered in communities locally and around the world, with a commitment that reflects the LUMS spirit. Awardees will be selected through a comprehensive nomination and evaluation process by the Awards Committee and up to 10 alumni will be awarded in a given year.
