Lasbela University of Agriculture, Water and Marine Sciences (LUAWMS), Uthal, Lasbela, Balochistan is a public sector University established in 2005. It is one of the emerging Universities around Pakistan in the fields of natural and social sciences. LUAWMS offers various degree programmes such as Agriculture, Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Engineering Sciences, Marine Sciences, Social and Management Sciences, English Language and Literature, Education and Islamic Studies. 95% of the students are hostelites and residing on campus. Majority of the students joining LUAWMS belongs to destitute families and therefore, the University management under the Vice Chancellorship of Professor Dr. Dost Muhammad Baloch established a directorate in 2015, named as University Advancement and Financial Aid Office (UA&FAO) for financial assistance of those students who cannot pay for their fee owing to their financial circumstances. With the help of God Almighty and the sincere support and encouragement of the Vice Chancellor, by now, more than 45 % of the students of LUAWMS are availing some sort of financial aid/assistance/interest free loan from the Directorate of University Advancement and Financial Aid Office.


The key mission of UA &FAO is to chase and increase the number of funding organizations and philanthropist individuals to grant scholarships to our students and for that we signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with them with the prior approval of the competent authority of the university.


The vision of UA &FAO is to function efficiently and professionally to use University resources sensibly and approaches various national and international donor and philanthropist organizations to sponsor the students of LUAWMS belonging to destitute families so that they may pursue higher education and become useful citizens of Pakistan without any distraction.
