The Hult Prize On-Campus Program is an initiative of the Hult Prize foundation offered in partnership
with the United Nation’s Office of Partnerships and a winning prize of 1 million USD.
The foundation was established by Ahmad Ashkar as a startup program. Today, it is the world leader in impact education. The Hult Prize has been named “Nobel Prize for Students” by media sources worldwide. Quoting Bill Clinton, the 42nd president of the United States:
“Hult Prize is one of the top 5 ideas changing the world!”
The program consists of pitching events, training programs, networking meetups, and corporate networking. A workforce of tens of thousands of people working in 121+ countries and an alumni network of more than 2 million people. The organization has always been tackling the global world problems and providing support to young talent to come forward and think big.
The program is conducted in a series of events. First the On-Campus Program at 2000+ institutions worldwide, then a regional summit, an accelerator program to help make the idea a reality, and at last the final award ceremony as the United Nation’s headquarters in New York. More than 300,000 people participate annually in the program.
Although the organization has been in the impact sector for a decade and contributed up to 65 million
USD, the program is being conducted for the first time at NUCES Lahore, Pakistan. The program will open up an opportunity for the 3500+ enrolled students at the campus to a global stage.
It is a year-long competition that allows budding entrepreneurs to practically engage and solve the UN’s
Sustainable Development Goals.
A student of the Computer Science department, Danish Ali, was selected as the Campus Director by the
Hult Prize Foundation. The recruitment process of the organizing committee has been completed and due to the on-going situation of COVID-19, the program will be conducted online.
