How do I apply?

If you think your proposed idea meets the criteria, you can apply using our application form.

SUF Application Form

  • We will never repeat it enough: read thoroughly through the guidance. Make sure you have the criteria in mind and understand the few budget restrictions.
  • If you’re applying as an individual student or an informal group of students (not registered as a society), we would advise you to ask for a meeting with our Funds coordinator before submitting your application (su.arcstaff@lse.ac.uk).
  • Write your application using a clear and concise language. Ask yourself if someone who never heard about your project can understand its main objectives and how you plan to deliver it.
  • We would advise you to check the questions by clicking on the form button and write your application in a Word document before copy-pasting the answers in the form.
  • The SUF can only pay for expenditures mentioned in your application. Therefore, try to be as precise as possible regarding which specific expenditures you would like the SUF to pay for.
  • We know that your project might not be completely ready and you might be waiting for complementary information or quotes. That is fine, just mentioned it in your application. If your project or budget changes after you’ve submitted your application or after you’ve been funded, contact us as soon as possible so we can agree on a new project or budget. .
