Columbia together with the LSE are aiming to provide substantial fellowships for the most promising applicants. Because not all students will receive these fellowships, MA/MSc students are encouraged to apply for external fellowships. Please note scholarship programs often have application deadlines between six months and one year before the start of the academic program.
More information on external fellowships and financial aid at Columbia can be found on the website of the GSAS Office of Financial Aid. The office is open from 9 am to 4:45 pm, Monday through Friday. Each Wednesday students are seen on a walk-in basis. Students are also welcome to set up individual appointments on other days of the week. To contact the office, please call 212-854-3808 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Financial Support Office at LSE is another resource for fellowship information. The Financial Support Office holds drop-in sessions every day during term time between 1 pm and 2 pm in the Student Services Centre in the Old Building. During vacations, drop in sessions are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Students who are unable to attend any of the drop in sessions are welcome to contact the Office by phone (+44 (0)20 7955 6609), fax (+44 (0)20 7955 6099), or send an email to email@example.com.
