Where you can help

Realising Potential

PotentialIcon_MortarBoard_thumbThe School believes that the huge benefits of an LSE education should never be based on the financial background of a student. Realising potential means LSE fulfilling its pledge to broaden the student population and dramatically widen participation in university education, through scholarships and work with schools.

Giving opportunities: 

  • PhD Scholarships
  • Postgraduate Scholarships
  • Undergradate Scholarships
  • Widening Participation Programmes

Research Innovation

ResearchIconthumbThe most impactful LSE research happens when disciplinary, regional and organisational boundaries are reduced and experts working in different fields and with multi-country views are brought together. LSE is committed to developing knowledge through innovative social science research and to informing policymakers and the broader public about how to put that knowledge to work in making a better world.

Giving opportunities: 

  • Institute of Global Affairs
  • International Inequalities Institute
  • Institute of Public Affairs

Thought Leadership

ThoughtIconthumbAt the very heart of LSE is its talented faculty who educate and train future leaders, and who work to develop solutions to the most pressing challenges faced by society. To ensure that LSE remains at the forefront of social science and continues to be an authoritative and distinct public good in the world, we must continue to attract and retain the most brilliant minds.

Giving opportunities: 

  • School Professorships
  • Visiting Professorships

Place and Purpose

PlaceIconthumbWorld class teaching, research and public events demand world class buildings and facilities, and so we have committed to creating a truly modern, sustainable university quarter for our students, staff and visiting public. Philanthropy has been instrumental in the modernisation of LSE’s campus in recent times from the redevelopment of the LSE Library and the New Academic Building to the construction of the award-winning Saw Swee Hock Student Centre at the heart of our campus.

Giving opportunities:

  • The Centre Buildings Redevelopment
  • 44 Lincoln's Inn Fields
