Alf Waddington Scholarship

Ms Sue Howes grew up on a council estate in the North of England and graduated from LSE in 1972 with a BA in Sociology. She established this scholarship so that other students from disadvantaged backgrounds can benefit from an LSE education. 

One scholarship is available to a UK student undertaking any full-time master's programme within the Department of Sociology. 

The scholarship value is being confirmed.
