Undergraduate Support Scheme

The LSE Undergraduate Support Scheme provides funding for overseas (including EU) students who do not have the necessary funds to meet all their costs of study.

Please note that the LSE receives far more applications for financial assistance than it can support so unfortunately not all applications to the Undergraduate Support Scheme will be successful.

Award amounts vary depending on individual circumstances but are usually between £6,000 and £15,000 per year. Any award made would be renewed for each year of your programme, subject to satisfactory academic progress.

How to apply

Once you have an offer of admission (conditional or unconditional) to attend LSE, you should submit by email to financial-support@lse.ac.uk the following:

  • LSE Undergraduate Scholarship Application form
  • One academic reference - this can be sent by you together with your scholarship application, or it can be sent to us separately by your referee
  • Supporting documents - this will vary dependent on the information you have provided; further guidance can be found in the scholarship application form

The deadline for the receipt of LSE Undergraduate Scholarship Applications for offer holders with Overseas fee status is: 28 April 2023.

All scholarship application decisions will be sent by email by the end of July 2023 (for those with Overseas fee status). Please ensure that our domain name - lse.ac.uk - is added to your safe senders list and routinely check your junk/spam folders. 

By submitting your completed LSE Undergraduate Scholarship Application, you will be considered for any LSE scholarships for which you are eligible.
