London School of Economics (LSE) has announced up to 40 scholarships to students from India studying a master’s programme at the school starting in 2014. The awards will range in value from £3,000 to £32,000 depending on financial need. Students must hold an offer of a place on an LSE Master’s programme by April 28, 2014, to be eligible for an award and scholarships will be made on the basis of financial need.

Craig Calhoun, LSE director professor, says that LSE has enjoyed a strong relationship with India for over a century. This has included welcoming thousands of Indian students to study at the school during this time.

To apply for one of these awards you should first of all apply for a place on one of LSE’s graduate programmes. The list of available master’s programmes can be found on the graduate admissions website.

Once you have applied for a place at the school you should complete the LSE graduate financial support application form. A link to this will be sent to you when receipt of your application is acknowledged. This form is used by the financial support office to assess candidates’ eligibility for all awards available at LSE, including the new LSE Indian graduate scholarships. If you have already received an offer of a place for 2014, but have not previously applied for financial support then you can do so at any point until April 28, 2014.

Indian students are eligible for these. Candidates must be holding an offer of place on a master’s programme at the school within the deadline. Assessment for an award will be made on the basis of financial need. Visit www.lse.ac.uk for details.
