NEED initiative is a nationwide educational outreach campaign, in which NUST will reach out to students from multiple districts and proximate tehsils of Pakistan. From every district, students who are enrolled in HSSC-I will be approached. Colleges from these areas will be encouraged to nominate deserving students (those who pass the eligibility criteria for admission and come from weak financial background). Selected students will be provided with entry test coaching. After getting scrutinized under the three tiered merit based system of NUST, the students will be provided with free education in NUST from the endowment fund NEED program generates.
