We are pleased to announce the launch of the Urban Age Scholarship for the LSE Executive MSc in Cities, made possible through the Urban Age Programme. The Urban Age Programme is a joint initiative between LSE Cities and the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft, the international forum of Deutsche Bank.
The LSE Executive MSc in Cities is a flexible, tailor-made programme for global urban leaders in the public, private and third sectors who want to rethink the way their organisations are delivering large scale change in cities.
One of our key priorities for the Executive MSc in Cities is to ensure that it replicates the successful Urban Age model of bringing together stakeholders from as wide a range of contexts as possible and broadening access to knowledge and debate around the way we design and govern our cities. We want to actively promote a student body that brings a diversity of experiences, backgrounds and perspectives to the programme.
The Urban Age Scholarship is designed to support outstanding candidates wanting to study on the LSE Executive MSc in Cities who cannot access the necessary funds to meet all their costs of study.
All applicants to the Executive MSc in Cities, regardless of their professional background, nationality or current residence are eligible to apply for the Urban Age Scholarship, provided they can demonstrate financial need.
Scholarships may be awarded to cover the full cost of tuition, but partial tuition scholarships are also available. The amount of the award will be determined based on a combination of factors, including the quality of applicants and their respective financial needs. For the 2016/2017 academic year up to three full tuition scholarships may be awarded.
The application form for the Urban Age Scholarship and accompanying guidance notes will be available from emc.lsecities.net/urbanagescholarship from Friday, 22 April 2016 and the deadline for submissions is Monday, 6 June 2016 at 12:00 GMT.
