Hello Everyone, I am new here, so I apologize if there is already a thread about this that I missed, but I was accepted into my first-choice reach school, The London School of Economics. They gave me a persoalized letter and the department said they would really like to have me, however, I was not offered any funding at all (the department itself has no funds to offer). I am an American student and I could take out soul-destroying American student loans, but I would really hate to do so if I do not have to. On the other hand, I would also hate to turn down my first-choice school for monetary reasons (I did the same thing for my undergraduate degree--- turned down my first-choice school in favor of a school that was cheaper). I have been saving money for 3 years here in Japan, but my family fell onto hard times and so I gave all of the money that I saved for graduate school to them. I am slowly rebuilding, but I definitely won't have enough to cover everything. I think I could probably save enough to cover living expenses if no big problems comes up between then and now. Does anyone know of any LSE scholarships (or scholarships for Americans who want to study at LSE/the UK) aside from the graduate support scheme? For everything that I've found either the deadline has already passed or filling out the online form graduate support scheme was sufficient. I want to exhaust all my possibilities before I give up on my dream, so if you know of anything, please help me. I was accepted into other programs that offer funding, but they aren't quite as specific and they aren't a perfect fit for me like LSE's program is. Thank you!
