LSE Financial Support - Home students

The School provides generous financial support, in the form of bursaries and scholarships to all students. 


LSE Bursaries are available for Home fee status LSE students and are awarded according to household income.

LSE Discretionary Bursaries are available for Home fee status LSE students who face exceptional financial need and where the household income is not reflective of financial circumstances. The value of the bursaries varies according to individual circumstances, and will not exceed a total of £4,000 when combined with the LSE Bursary.

The 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 financial need. 

LSE scholarships

Each year LSE awards a number of scholarships, funded by private or corporate donations. The number, value, eligibility criteria and type of scholarships vary from year to year.

All scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial circumstances in the first instance, and secondly take into account academic merit.
