Hub for Equal Representation in the Economy - Grants

The LSE-Gates Hub for Equal Representation have created an inaugural grant programme dedicated to supporting women and minorities in economics and related fields.

The grant is to support proposals from LSE faculty and LSE students with a particular focus on the issues facing women and other underrepresented groups. Successful proposals will be funded up to £5,000.

Funding objectives could include (but are not limited to):

  • Fund action-oriented research on gender-transformative policies and interventions.
  • Develop researchers' expertise to conduct gender-transformative research.
  • Actions that support career development of women or under-represented minorities at the LSE or in academia more broadly (e.g. organisation of conferences, networking & mentoring programmes, help for research dissemination, etc.)

For all enquiries about the grants please contact Lubala Chibwe, LSE-Gates Hub Communications and Events Manager, email:

The deadline for the next round of applications is 19 May 2023.

For information on the grants please read the terms and conditions and download the application form.
