Scholarship Fund


We are committed to bring the most talented with the greatest potential to LSE, but this year we could only support 12% of scholarship applications and demand is growing.

 Shaping the world? 

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on LSE students from under-represented communities - those who are most in need of financial support. Last year our alumni and friends funded 189 scholarships. It just shows how every gift really matters.
