What is Change Makers?

What is the Change Makers programme?

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

Beginning in 2018/19, Change Makers funded approximately £50,000 worth of student-led research projects. In 2019/20, this funding will be increased to £65,000, across areas covering:

  • Community at LSE
  • Inclusive education
  • Research and education
  • Assessment and feedback

More details about the 2019/20 programme will be available shortly.

At the end of the project, applicants will be asked to present 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 individual.
