We offer the opportunity of a fully funded PhD programme for some students. Election for funding is based on receipt of application to the programme by the relevant deadline (for 2022-23 entry this was 14 January 2022). There is no separate application form for LSE studentship or ESRC funding. You do not need to inform the Department of your intention to be put forward for funding.
For 2022 entry, LSE is also offering three doctoral studentships for PhD study in any Department for research addressing ‘Analysing and Challenging Inequalities’ (ACI - more information can be found here). As with LSE studentships and ESRC funding, applicants should apply to the programme by the deadline stated above to be considered, though applicants who would like to be considered for ACI funding should make reference to where their research will fit into the ACI theme in their application.
We recommend that applicants also look into external sources of funding at the time of application, to increase their chances of securing funding for the duration of the programme. This will not affect the nomination process for LSE, ESRC or ACI studentships.
