1. How do I progress my Academic Director’s Scholarship Application?
Answer: If you have been offered a place on one of the eligible courses you will automatically be invited to complete the scholarship application process. You will receive an email from the Summer School admissions team soon after the 16th of April. At this point you will be asked to provide us with additional information, including a statement of motivation, to be considered for the scholarships.
2. Should I delay paying my course fees until I receive news about the scholarship?
Answer: There are limited scholarships available, and they will be assessed on a merit only basis. You will need to continue processing your fees as a normal LSE Summer School applicant. If you are awarded an Academic Director’s Scholarship we will refund your course fees.
3. How long do I need to wait before I know if I have been awarded the scholarship?
Answer: Academic Director’s Scholarship winners will be announced in early May once all applications have been assessed and considered. You will need to continue to pay your course fees. Only if you have been given a Scholarship would we begin the process of refunding your fees.
4. Can you confirm my Summer School place is secure whilst I await the outcome of the scholarship?
Answer: Tuition fees should be paid within 30 days of receiving your offer email, as your place on the programme is only guaranteed once we have received full payment. If you subsequently receive a scholarship, we will then begin the refund process.
