The School provides generous financial support, in the form of bursaries and scholarships to all students.
As the terms of the UK’s exit agreement from the EU are finalised, LSE will continue to make funding available to all students regardless of fee status.
Undergraduate students from the UK are eligible for an LSE Bursary assessed according to household income.
The bursary package for 2021 has not yet been approved but we will publish here in November 2020.
LSE Discretionary Bursaries
A number of Discretionary Bursaries are available for UK LSE students who face exceptional financial need. The value of the award may vary according to need, but is not expected to exceed a total of £4,000 combined with the LSE Bursary.
LSE Accommodation Bursaries
An LSE Accommodation Bursary is designed to encourage students from lower-income households to apply for accommodation in halls. Available for UK nationals, the value of the award will vary depending on the number of recipients and their financial need.
Each year LSE awards a number of scholarships, funded by private or corporate donation, to our students. The number, value, eligibility criteria and type of awards vary from year to year.
All the scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need in the first instance, and then academic merit.
New scholarships will be available for 2021 entry and will be added here during the course of the admissions cycle. We recommend you check this webpage on a regular basis. The application process is currently being updates and details will be available here at the end of January 2021 and will be contained within each of the below sections.
Further scholarships for 2021 entry will be added here in the coming months
