The LSE Trust Undergraduate Scholarship Award

The Trust funds Undergraduate Scholarship Awards for Singaporean students, covering their tuition fees.

Applicants for the Trust’s Undergraduate Scholarship Award must be Singaporean citizens who have already gained admission to the LSE. They go through a rigorous assessment:

1. By the LSE’s Financial Support Office (FSO) to ensure that the applicant has a genuine financial need, and yet a realistic ability to raise sufficient other sources of funds for their living expenses (e.g. family savings, borrowing or part-time work) and

2. By the Trustees of The Singapore LSE Trust to ensure that applicants are “someone special with a social conscience.” The Trustees are looking for applicants with a track record of doing good and contributing to others / causes despite their own challenges, someone with the desire for the betterment of society or the pursuit of a meaningful cause, who will “pay it forward” if given this opportunity.

Successful applicants can expect to receive a undergraduate scholarship award covering their tuition fees over the course of their first degree, which are around £23,330 per annum for the 2022/23 academic year, or £69,990 in total for a three year undergraduate course.

Applications for the award are administered by the school’s Financial Support Office (FSO) and prospective students should apply directly through the FSO’s website.
