Further information

Am I eligible for the Loughborough Scholarship Programme?

To be eligible for consideration for the Loughborough Scholarship Programme;

  • Liable to pay the full tuition fee
  • Applied for a means tested loan via the Student Loans Company and fall within a qualifying household income band

Please note your sponsors (usually your parents) must give their consent to share their financial information with the University in order for you to be considered for the award.

If you meet these conditions you could be entitled to a LSP award. If this is the case you will normally be advised of your eligibility during the autumn term, with the first cash bursary payment (if applicable) being made on or around week 6 of term.

How do I apply for the LSP?

You do not need to make a separate application to the University in order to be considered for a LSP award. However, you will need to have made an application to the relevant student finance award agency.

You and your sponsors (usually your parents) will also need to have given their consent to share information with the University. Once we have determined that you are eligible you will receive an email from studentenquiries@lboro.ac.uk - if you believe that you are eligible for an award and have not received an email please contact us at studentenquiries@lboro.ac.uk.

Will LSP awards be renewed for each year of my course?

If you pass your end of year examinations and proceed to the next academic year of your course, your LSP award will be renewed subject to certain conditions including the income threshold continuing to be met. If you undertake a sandwich version of the course (i.e. a placement year), LSP awards will not be paid in the sandwich year (normally year 3).

How will the LSP be paid?


The bursary element of the scholarship programme will go directly into your bank account. This payment is staggered as 33% of the total value across the three university terms.

Tuition fee waiver

The University will adjust your tuition fee application amount directly with the relevant student finance agency to account for your tuition fee waiver. The tuition fee waiver will be staggered across the three terms in instalments of 33%, 33% and 34%.
