Scholarship Description

Seven scholarships are available for new LSE undergraduate students from the UK. Three scholarships are available for new LSE undergraduate students from any country outside the UK (who are classified as having overseas fee status). The Uggla Family has a preference for one overseas Scholar to be from Canada. For each academic year, Scholarships will provide partial tuition fee awards and full financial support for the Scholars’ term-time accommodation and other term-time expenses, including include food, household bills, travel, study books and social events. In addition, Scholars will join the Uggla Family Scholars community and be supported throughout their undergraduate journey through a portfolio of activities and opportunities which include:


  • To be considered for the Uggla Family Scholars Programme, 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 the overseas Uggla Family Scholarships will be awarded to an offer holder from Canada.
