The Standard Bank Scholarships

The Standard Bank scholarships launched at LSE 

The Department of Finance at LSE is pleased to announce the launch of The Standard Bank Scholarships.

The scholarships, generously supported by Standard Bank Plc for the next 3 academic years, offer the opportunity of funding to students from emerging markets (with a preference for students from Brazil, China, Russia, Turkey and Sub-Saharan Africa) to study one of the following Masters programmes within the Department of Finance:

  • MSc Finance (Full-time)
  • MSc Finance and Private Equity
  • MSc Finance and Economics
  • MSc Management and Regulation of Risk

Eight scholarships are available for the 2011/12 academic year, which cover 100% of tuition fees and £500 towards course materials, plus up to £1,500 of travel costs to London for each successful candidate. The scholarship is aimed at providing the opportunities for students who currently do not have the financial means to pursue further studies of this nature.

'We are extremely grateful to Standard Bank for supporting our students in this way' said Professor David Webb, Head of the Department of Finance. 'These scholarships will give the opportunity for students, who would normally have been unable to attend LSE, to study in a world class environment and will also help to further enrich the cultural diversity of our programmes'.

Applicants interested in the scholarships should first make a formal application to LSE to either the, MSc Finance (Full-time), MSc Finance and Private Equity, MSc Finance and Economics or MSc Management and Regulation of Risk via the online LSE application form|. Once receiving an offer for one of the above programmes eligible students will be considered for the Standard Bank Scholarships amongst other awards offered by LSE. Scholarships will be awarded on a needs basis. For more information please see LSE Financial Support.
