Antoine Faure-Grimaud MSc Scholarships

These scholarships vary in amount (and will be put towards the tuition fees in the first instance), and be offered to an applicant who will be pursuing MSc Finance (full time) or MSc Finance and Private Equity. The Department will select candidates on a rolling basis and will consider academic merit and financial need, by using the application to the Graduate Support Scheme alongside the application for admission to LSE Read more.

The Sudipto Bhattacharya Scholarship for MSc Finance and Economics

The Department offers a small number of scholarships covering full fees for the MSc Finance and Economics. These scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit and every successful applicant admitted to the MSc Finance and Economics will be considered automatically, until all the scholarships have been awarded. Decisions on these awards will be made throughout the cycle and the awards are limited in number, so therefore it is recommended that applicants apply early in the cycle to have the best chance of achieving one of these scholarships.

The late Professor Sudipto Bhattacharya taught on the programme and taught many MSc Finance and Economics alumni over the years.

The MSc Finance and Economics Conversion Scholarship for Engineering, Mathematics and Sciences

This scholarship is available to outstanding candidates who apply for the MSc Finance and Economics programme with limited or no economics background. Students who are eligible will automatically be considered for the scholarship.

The scholarship covers the tuition fees of a three week summer 'conversion' course in EC201 Intermediate Microeconomics and/or EC312 Advanced Econometrics and includes a living expenses award for each course. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit.  

NB: Recipients are required to pay the summer course tuition fees upfront. Once the student registers for the MSc Finance & Economics programme, the full amount of the Conversion Scholarship award will be reimbursed to their tuition fee account by the Department. If a student attends the courses but does not join the MSc Finance and Economics programme, or transfers to another programme, they would not receive the award reimbursement.
