PwC Lord Benson Awards Scheme

The PwC Lord Benson Awards Scheme was established in memory of Henry Benson, who served the Coopers & Lybrand firm for 49 years, 38 of those as a Partner.

A few years after his death in 1995, a bursary scheme for undergraduates attending the London School of Economics and Political Science and who are predominantly from inner London boroughs was established to commemorate Lord Benson, whose lifelong interest in education and learning inspired many.  

PwC is committed to playing a meaningful role in the communities where it operates, by developing sustainable relationships that meet the needs of its local communities and the firm.  Along with its proximity to PwC's offices, the choice of the LSE reflects the opportunity for students from all over the world and from all social, educational and ethnic backgrounds, to study in an institution with a worldwide academic reputation.

What will a PwC Lord Benson Award offer you?

  • £8,500 per year for a maximum of 3 years
  • Possibility of a work placement
  • The opportunity to be mentored by a professional at PwC
