This means that for each application year, ten undergraduate scholarships will be made available under the programme for students with the greatest financial need including those from underrepresented groups in higher education. The scholarships are designed to help new students at LSE gain a global perspective, achieve academic excellence, and develop civic leadership skills.

The scholarships offer students a generous financial package in addition to guidance, support, and opportunities throughout the full duration of your undergraduate studies at LSE to help position students for future success.

The LSE Uggla Family Scholarship Programme is working in collaboration with Simon Fraser University  in Canada and the Shitima School in Zambia, who will also host Uggla Family Scholars.
