Bursaries

The LSE-UCT July School has secured funding for two separate bursary schemes to provide financial support for participants on the programme.

Bursaries for African Nationals: 
2014 Applications Now Closed

African nationals who have been accepted onto the LSE-UCT July School are eligible to apply for support from the Standard Bank Bursaries and Giuseppe Roasenda Bursaries. A limited number of bursaries are available to cover (or contribute to) tuition fees, travel to Cape Town and/or living costs.

In order to be eligible for the bursary, an application| for the LSE-UCT July School must be submitted by the extended deadline of 24 April 2014.  Applicants must pay the £40 application fee in order to submit their application - the application fee is not covered by the bursary.

Eligible applicants who indicate that they wish to apply for the bursary will be sent the bursary application form once their application has been competed and they have been offered a place on the programme. This must be returned to the LSE-UCT July School office within one week.

The maximum bursary will be for tuition fees, return travel to/ from Cape Town from their home city in Africa, and accommodation costs. However, it is expected that most applicants will be able to make some contribution to the costs, and so most bursaries will be awarded at a lower level.

In their bursary application, applicants must provide information on the costs they will incur and the funding they already have available to them. The bursary application will be be for the total amount which would be required (total costs minus funding available) to allow the applicant to attend the programme. Verification of this financial information may be requested before bursaries grants are made.

Applications will be assessed based on the financial information provided, the applicant's responses to three questions about their motivation for applying for the programme and the impact this would have on them and their community. The bursaries will aim to support diversity in the LSE-UCT July School student body.
