Scholarships have the power to leverage long-lasting change at the heart of the social mobility crisis, whilst ensuring the brightest minds are positioned to have the greatest impact on the future.

Why do scholarships matter?

Our bold ambition is to transform access to London Business School. Scholarships will ensure we attract the brightest minds, enriching the entire LBS community.

Competition for the very best students is steep

Our peers attract top talent with endowed scholarships for over 60% of their students. Whilst we have grown our portfolio of support, we’re still only able to provide financial help to up to 25% of our students. Campaign gifts will allow us to double our scholarship offering through both merit and needs-based support.

Academic excellence is crucial

A number of newly established scholarship programmes are supporting our efforts to attract the best students. The Campaign will increase our ability to vie for the brightest minds – from the UK and around the globe.

Transforming access to LBS

We are committed to significantly increasing the diversity of our student body beyond geography, by supporting traditionally under-represented groups in business education.
