As the name implies, The 66 Scholarship Foundation was founded by the class of 1966 of the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore.
The class fellows came from ordinary backgrounds and developed, over a period of time, a lot of love and affinity for each other. After graduating, although the class spread all over the world pursuing careers and higher education, the bonds they fostered together, always remained with them.
Annual get togethers were planned and the regrouping steadily increased, and members were seen flying over long distances to meet up.
In one of such meetings in 2013, the idea of helping students in need took birth. Mr. Naveed Afraz was tasked to setup a fund and coordinate with the University to offer scholarships. Helping hands and willing workers soon produced results, and in May 2014, the following letter was written to the Vice Chancellor, University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore.
Although we started with our alma mater, we have since diversified and now support other institutions and disciplines as well.
