Antoine Faure-Grimaud MSc Scholarships

These scholarships vary in amount (and will be put towards the tuition fees in the first instance), and be offered to an applicant who will be pursuing MSc Finance (full time) or MSc Finance and Private Equity. The Department will select candidates on a rolling basis and will consider academic merit and financial need, by using the application to the Graduate Support Scheme alongside the application for admission to LSE Read more.

The Sudipto Bhattacharya Scholarship for MSc Finance and Economics

The Department offers a small number of scholarships covering full fees for the MSc Finance and Economics. These scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit and every successful applicant admitted to the MSc Finance and Economics will be considered automatically, until all the scholarships have been awarded. Decisions on these awards will be made throughout the cycle and the awards are limited in number, so therefore it is recommended that applicants apply early in the cycle to have the best chance of achieving one of these scholarships.

The late Professor Sudipto Bhattacharya taught on the programme and taught many MSc Finance and Economics alumni over the years.

LIFE Scholarships for Lebanese Students

LIFE, an organization channelling the influence of Lebanese Finance Executives worldwide, provides scholarships for Lebanese students (or of Lebanese descent) seeking to pursue their studies at top universities in the fields of finance/business. Applicants must demonstrate academic excellence (at or above 80th percentile) and have financial need. The LIFE scholarship covers up to $12,000.00USD per academic year and is renewable for the recipient's following year of study provided excellent academic standards are maintained. Once the scholarship is granted, LIFE intends to assign a mentor and a source of support and assistance. Application details can be found at:
