Benedek Scholarship - London-area study abroad opportunity


Created by a generous donation from Honors alumnus, Peter Benedek, the Benedek London Scholarship supports LSA Honors students who plan to study abroad at the London School of Economics (LSE). Funding for study at the LSE is our top priority but study at other London-area universities may be considered if funds are available. 

Programs at Cambridge and Oxford are not eligible for scholarship funding.

Student travel is subject to university guidelines: see Global Michigan.

Eligibility:   Undergraduate students in an LSA Honors program

Timeline:  Students are encouraged to apply for a scholarship as soon as they have submitted their program application. Decisions will be conditional upon acceptance into a program.

  • Academic year and fall semester programs - Application will open the third Monday of    January and close on April 1st.
  • Winter semester programs - Application will open the third Monday of August and close the fourth Monday of October. In 2023, the application opens on August 21st and closes at noon on October 23rd.

Students who are considering spring/summer programs at London-area universities are invited to apply for an Honors Research & Travel Grant during the winter cycle application window.

Application Instructions:   Students who have applied or are accepted to an LSE or London-area study abroad program should complete the online application for the scholarship during the open application windows.
