LSE Financial Support - Overseas students

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

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.
