Yes, each year LSE offers over £12.7 million in scholarships to its graduate students. There are also funding opportunities from external organisations, research councils and governments around the world.

Approximately 19% of taught master's offer holders are successful in obtaining some form of financial support from the School.
The value of support ranges in value from 10% of the tuition fee to a full fees and maintenance award.
Although the terms of the UK's exit agreement from the EU have not yet been finalised, LSE will continue to make funding available to all students regardless of fee status.
We offer a range of needs-based awards for taught master's programmes. This includes:
Country based and programme related awards for MSc or PhD study
The School also makes available scholarships for students from specific regions of the world and awards for students studying specific programmes or subject areas.
