Anniversary Scholarships

I study not only to gain knowledge but to decide how I will use this knowledge to change injustices within and around my community.

Anniversary Scholarships are available for taught master's students from the UK. Awards will vary in value and are based on financial need.


This scholarship is available for taught master's students from the UK and follow the same guidelines for the Graduate Support Scheme. 

Unfortunately applicants undertaking specific modular or executive programmes such as the MSc Finance (Part time) or the MSc Health Economics, Policy and Management are not eligible for these scholarships.

Scholarship amount

The awards will vary in value, based on financial need, and are designed to help with fees and/or living costs. The minimum award will be £5,000 and the maximum award will be worth £15,000.

How to apply

Selection for these awards will be based on the application to the Graduate Support Scheme (also see further details below). Please note you must complete Section G - Personal Statement.

Student stories

After applying to the programme and being made a conditional offer, my excitement was tempered by the reality that I may not be able to take up the offer without the necessary funds - so it was a huge honour to receive both the LSE Master's Award and the Desmond G Wiltshaw Scholarship
