Do you want to change the world? Could 90% off your tuition fees transform your life? Would you like support to positively impact the world? Here at Loughborough University London we believe that our students must help to solve the world's challenges and problems. Our Global Excellence Scholarship backs this commitment to positive change.

Our Global Excellence Scholarship prioritises innovators and disruptive thinkers who want to create genuine and lasting change. Whether you want to start a business, become an activist, take on a campaign or develop your own social enterprise, this scholarship is for you.

Can you demonstrate disruptive thinking and a commitment to change in one of our three strategic themes Climate Change, Vibrant and Inclusive Communities or Sport, Health and Wellbeing? You don’t need a polished pitch or a fully formed idea. You just need to show us you have the academic qualities and personal attributes to bring new perspectives to our community.
