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 the area of 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 pounds, 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. LSE enrolls between 300 and 400 Indian students each year, with the majority of these students registered onto post-graduate programmes.
