What is Change Makers?

What is the Change Makers programme?

Change Makers is a new, collaborative programme between LSE and LSE Students’ Union that gives students the chance to make meaningful change at LSE through independent research.

Running across Lent Term 2019, Change Makers will fund up to £50,000 worth of student-led research projects in areas that you have told us we need to do better:

  • Community at LSE
  • Inclusive education
  • Assessment and feedback
  • Building connections beyond LSE

At the end of the project you will be asked to present your findings and recommendations to senior leadership across LSE and LSESU.

Who can apply?

The Change Makers programme is open to all students, whatever your level of study. You're welcome to apply to the programme as a group or as an indivdual.
