First-Generation Students from TCF Make Their Way to Top-Tier Universities of Pakistan

By Team BitBol,

As university admissions begin throughout the country, deserving graduates
from The Citizens Foundation (TCF) schools from all over Pakistan are making their way to some of
the top-tier higher education institutions of the country.
The Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) and Institute of Business Administration
(IBA) announced their admission results this month. 4 TCF alumni secured admission and scholarship
under the LUMS – National Outreach Programme, while 8 TCF graduates made it to IBA on
scholarship as part of its National Talent Hunt Programme. Other renowned universities where TCF
graduates have successfully gained admissions include – Institute of Business Management (IoBM),
Habib University and SZABIST. Over the next few months, as more universities conduct their
entrance tests, TCF is expecting that many more of its graduates will be offered admissions and
scholarships at other private and government universities as well as colleges.
“To break the barriers of class and privilege, low-income students must make it to good universities
and colleges. TCF, for the past 25 years, is making strides toward this goal,” TCF’s President and CEO,
Syed Asaad Ayub Ahmad said while commenting on this achievement of TCF graduates. “We are so
proud that our alumni are attending some of the top-ranked educational institutions of the
country,” he added further.
Right now, 100% of TCF alumni who get enrolled in undergraduate colleges are first-generation
learners – the first in their family to go to college! For all of them, it means the chance to change the
trajectory of their entire families’ and community’s future.
