Eligibility

To be considered for the Uggla Family Scholarships, applicants must have accepted a conditional or unconditional offer of admission on any undergraduate programme at LSE. Candidates must be from low-income households and be able to demonstrate financial need.

Preferred candidates

LSE is looking to support undergraduate students from underrepresented groups as set out in our Access and Participation Plan. We therefore are looking to encourage:

  • applications from underrepresented Black, Minority, Ethnic (BME) backgrounds, especially from Black African/Caribbean, Pakistani and Bangladeshi heritage,
  • applications from students who are care leavers,
  • students of all gender identities to ensure gender balance across the ten scholarships, 
  • applications from Canada as one of Uggla Family Scholarships will be  awarded to an offer holder from Canada.
