London School of Economics announces 50 new scholarships for Indians
London: The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) has announced 50 new scholarships for post-graduate Indian students as part of Briton’s efforts to enhance bilateral cooperation in education and research.
The LSE India Scholarships and a major collaborative research programme on gender equality in the country were announced during British Prime Minister David Cameron’s ongoing visit to India. The LSE scholarships will enable more students from India to study for a Master’s degree at the prestigious London-based British university from this year.
The awards will range from £3,000 to £32,000, depending on financial need and are open to all Indian students who hold an offer of a place on an LSE Master’s programme by April 30, 2013.
“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.
“ ...We want to ensure that LSE’s doors are open to all talented students, regardless of financial circumstances, and are delighted to cement this relationship further by offering 50 scholarships, for graduate study, for students from India,” said LSE Director Professor Craig Calhoun, who is part of the delegation accompanying Cameron during ongoing India visit.
