In line with the successful Urban Age model, the programme seeks to bring together stakeholders from as wide a range of contexts as possible, thereby broadening access to knowledge and debate around the way we design and govern our cities
For 2018/19 Executive MSc in Cities applicants, LSE Cities is running the Urban Age Scholarships scheme which offers up to £15,000 of tuition fee support to outstanding candidates. This scheme is open to all applicants who are unable to meet the full cost of tuition, regardless of nationality, current residence or professional background.
As only a limited number of awards are available, LSE Cities uses a selection process that considers both the quality of the applicant and their financial need. The former will be judged on the information provided in the programme application (submitted through Graduate Admissions) and the latter will be assessed according to information provided in the LSE Cities Scholarship Application Form.
The deadline to complete the LSE Cities scholarship application process is 12.00 GMT (noon) on Monday 26 March 2018. Full details of the application process are outlined below. Applicants must complete all steps by the deadline in order to be considered for a scholarship. All decisions were released at the end of May 2017.
Applicants should carefully consider how much financial support they require before submitting their scholarship application. The panel will look favourably on applicants who can demonstrate that they have made efforts to secure funding from non-LSE sources.
Please note that successful candidates may be asked to provide proof of their financial need, such as payslips or bank statements.
The selectors will review all applications and will choose a shortlist for interview. These interviews will take place on Thursday 26 April 2018 and will be conducted via Skype. In-person interviews are not offered in order to ensure fairness to all candidates.
Scholarship decisions will be announced by the end of May 2018. All scholarships decisions are final and no appeals are possible.
In order to be considered for a scholarship, applicants must complete BOTH of the following steps by 12.00 (noon) on Monday 26 March 2018.
