LUMS Programme Scholarships

In recognition of the outstanding talent of many students, we offer a range of prestigious scholarships designed to attract and reward the best students. We know that undertaking postgraduate study can be a large financial commitment, so we are making significant funding awards, totalling around £1.9m, available to UK, EU and international students who have been offered places on our postgraduate Masters programmes.

The awards are made by each individual programme, and are allocated on a rolling basis, so it is advisable to make your application as early in the year as possible to maximise your chances of receiving an award.


Please visit the scholarships page for the particular programmes you are interested in.
