The Department of Economics has a fund known as the Economics Student Events Fund (ESEF) to which registered LSESU Societies may apply to help with the cost of running a small number of events each year. If your event is directly related to the discipline of economics and is being held at the LSE, you may be eligible to apply to the fund for financial assistance. The Economics Department is particularly keen to fund imaginative collaborative events that are co-hosted by LSE academic departments and societies.
Suitable uses for the ESEF include catering, stationery, the travel costs of keynote speakers, and the hire of audio-visual equipment.
Students wishing to apply to the fund should fill in an Economics Student Event Fund application form.
Please note that all queries regarding the fund should be addressed to the LSE Societies Development Coordinator, Iain Pullar, not to members of the Department of Economics, and that events for which funding is sought must comply with all LSE and LSESU regulations regarding events, as well as with the LSE’s Financial Regulations.
The deadline for applications for events in Lent Term 2014 is 5pm on Friday 17 January 2014.
