LSHTM's Student Financial Support Fund
You can help LSHTM students focus on their studies instead of worrying about money.
Our scholarships cover tuition fees and contribute towards living costs, but what happens when the cost of living in London becomes unmanageable?
The UK, like so many other places around the world, is in the grip of an unprecedented cost of living crisis. LSHTM students in London must contend with typical rent rises of 30% since 2019, while the price of food has risen by 12% this year.
We all know that the cost of heating our homes has skyrocketed, presenting difficult decisions for those struggling financially.
Although our scholarship packages endeavour to keep pace with inflation, many students still struggle financially during their studies. The stress of money worries is a major barrier to academic success, and can result in talented students dropping out completely.
The reality is that this is already translating into increased demand for emergency funding at LSHTM through our Student Financial Support Fund.
The number of applications from students in urgent need has doubled since the previous academic year, and the amount our students are seeking far exceeds the £1,500 maximum we can currently offer.
