The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is offering LSE Master’s Awards (LMAs) to international students pursuing a taught Masters programme at the University.
These awards aim to assist students with significant financial need, who have been accepted into an LSE Masters degree but do not qualify for funding under the Graduate Support Scheme.
This supplemental scheme is designed to help students whose financial need exceeds other secured funding sources like savings, loans, and external scholarships.
Host Institution: The scholarships are provided by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), a prestigious institution known for its excellence in economics, politics, sociology, and related fields.
Level/Field of Study: The scholarships are available for taught Masters programmes offered at LSE, covering a wide range of academic disciplines.
Scholarship Value/Inclusions: The LSE Master’s Awards can vary in value, with awards ranging from £5,000 to a full scholarship covering the tuition fees and other expenses.
Eligibility: To be eligible for the LSE Master’s Awards, applicants must hold an offer for a taught Masters programme at LSE. Priority is given to students from low and middle income countries, especially if they cannot access loans or if their countries are underrepresented in other award schemes offered by the university.
Application Process: As of now, the applications for LSE Master’s Awards are closed. However, for students planning to begin their Masters programme in September 2021, the application process required candidates to submit their programme application and their application for graduate financial support.
The deadline for receiving a conditional or unconditional offer of a place was 29 April 2021 at 5 pm UK time. For future applications, interested students should regularly check the official scholarship website for updates.
The LSE Master’s Awards provide an excellent opportunity for international students, particularly those from low and middle income countries, to pursue their academic aspirations at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
By offering financial support to those in need, LSE aims to promote diversity and inclusivity within its student body while encouraging outstanding talents to excel in their chosen fields of study. Students planning to apply for future intakes should closely follow the official scholarship website for application details and deadlines.
