Scholarship fund

LSE SU Polish Business Society


We strongly believe that it is important for the community of Polish students in the United Kingdom to use their potential in challenging unfavourable status-quo that is widening social inequality in the Polish society. Therefore, during Polish Economic Forum 2016 we would like to draw your attention to many bright and ambitious Polish students who fully deserve to study at the world’s best universities; yet, due to their financial stance the doors to such universities remain closed.

The aim of the LSE SU PBS: Scholarship Fund is to financially support an outstanding student in studying at LSE who would not otherwise be in position to take up such a degree.

This year we commit to pass 50% of the proceeds from the sale of the ball tickets towards the LSE SU Polish Business Society’s Scholarship Fund.

All details on how to apply for the scholarship will be published in April 2016.
