The Department of Geography and Environment run an Undergraduate Research Fellowship scheme where students contribute to a research project, enabling academic staff to improve their research and its impact. Previous projects have included residential property taxation, climate agreements, migration policy and homelessness, and designing a teaching package using VR videos.
These fellowships are only open to current undergraduates in the Department of Geography and Environment.
Applications open annually, normally in early Autumn Term. Information about upcoming opportunities will be shared via email.
"Our ambition is that these fellowships will serve as a model for fostering a more inclusive research community within LSE." - Dr Richard Perkins describes the programme’s inception.
"I thought ‘I’ve got no chance, but I’ll just try anyway.’... I would definitely encourage anyone to do it." - Eleonore Lorijn on assisting Professor Vernon Henderson investigating the impact of colonialism on the built environment in African cities.
