Students Paul Woolley Centre

Paul Woolley Centre Scholarship and Visitors' Programme

The Paul Woolley Centre Scholarship Programme aims to support students pursuing postgraduate research in the areas covered by the Paul Woolley Centre research agenda. Paul Woolley Centre Scholars are based within the Centre and the Financial Markets Group, and are expected to work closely with its staff and faculty.

The scholarships are awarded between March and June each year to a maximum number of three outstanding PhD students who have been admitted to the PhD programme of the Finance Department or the Economics Department of the London School of Economics.

The Scholarships provide a stipend to support fees and/or living expenses. The award amount will not exceed that of the LSE PhD Scholarships, which cover fees and a living allowance of up £18,000 per annum. Scholarships are renewable on an annual basis after review.

For more information, contact fmg@lse.ac.uk.

Visitors' programme

The Visiting Fellowship Programme offers UK and International academics, whose research relates to areas covered by the centre's research agenda, the opportunity to visit The Paul Woolley Centre at LSE. Visiting Fellows are invited to spend time at the centre, interact with local faculty and possibly to contribute to the centre's seminar series or conferences.
