Scholarships

One of the Executive Msc in Cities’ key priorities is ensuring that outstanding candidates are able to participate in the programme, even if they are without the means to meet the full costs of their study.

The programme seeks to bring together stakeholders from as wide a range of contexts as possible, thereby broadening access to knowledge and debate around the way we design and govern our cities.

The LSE Cities Scholarships, Bloomberg Scholarships for Public Service, and LSE Cities Alumni Scholarships are intended to provide financial assistance to outstanding Executive MSc in Cities applicants who would not otherwise be able to meet the full cost of tuition.

As only a limited number of awards are available, we use a selection process that considers both the quality of the applicant and their financial need. The former will be judged on the information provided in the programme application (submitted through LSE Graduate Admissions) and the latter will be assessed according to information provided in the Executive MSc in Cities Scholarship Application Form.

The deadline to apply to the 2024/25 cycle is 12.00pm (Noon) on Monday 8 April 2024.
