The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is currently offering a £10,000 Marchant Foundation LLM Scholarship to eligible students who will be taking the Master of Laws (LLM) program at LSE for academic year 2018/19. While it is open to all LLM candidates from the UK and EU, preference is given to applicants who are resident in India.
This scholarship is provided by the Marchant Foundation through the donation made by a former law graduate (LLB 1986) of LSE. Selection of the awardee will be based on financial need. If no suitable Indian resident is chosen for the scholarship, EU and UK students will be considered.
To be eligible for the Marchant Foundation LLM Scholarship, the student must have submitted their application to the LLM program at LSE. The Master of Laws program at LSE offers several specialisms:
- Banking Law and Financial Regulation
- Corporate and/or Commercial Law
- Corporate and Securities Law
- Criminology and Criminal Justice
- European Law
- Human Rights Law
- Information technology, Media and Communications Law
- Intellectual Property Law
- International Business Law
- Legal Theory
- Public International Law
- Public Law
Along with the application to the program, the candidate should also submit their Graduate Financial Support Application Form though LSE's Graduate application tracker. Once the student receives an offer for a place in the program, whether conditional or unconditional by 26 April 2018 at 5:00 pm (UK Time), the student may apply for the scholarship.
It is important to complete the Personal Statement of the Graduate Financial Support Application Form, particularly Section G, to be considered for the LSE scholarships. Personal statements need not be submitted if the students' interest is to be considered only for the Graduate Support Scheme. The results of the Graduate Support Scheme application, under which the Marchant Foundation LLM Scholarship fall, will be shown upon receipt of the official offer. This is expected to be released by the end of July 2018.
