Please note the earlier deadline for these scholarships
To apply for Commonwealth funding for programmes beginning in September 2022, it is expected that you will follow these steps:
- submit your application for admission to one of the eligible programmes at LSE - Enquiries and applications for admission to the School should be addressed to the LSE Graduate Admissions Office.
- submit your application to the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission, via their webpages by 20 December 2021 AND submit your Graduate Financial Support Application Form via LSE for You by the 21 February 2022. This will also allow you to be considered for other LSE Scholarships you may be eligible for.
- receive an offer of a place (conditional or unconditional)
The CSC will provide LSE with the applications submitted to them. LSE will then short list and identify suitable candidates based on financial need and academic merit and return LSE's first choice nominations and reserves to the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission for its agreement.
This process has been completed for 2022 entry, so if you have not been emailed by LSE Financial Support Office, then unfortunately you have not been shortlisted as a cadidate for this scholarship.
While you may apply to more than one institution, only one offer of award may be accepted.
We recommend that you also complete the Graduate Financial Support Application Form in order to be considered for any other LSE Scholarships for which you meet the criteria.

The outcome to your Graduate Support Scheme application will be displayed after you have received an offer. Successful applicants selected for other LSE Scholarships or awards will be notified by the end of July 2022.
