GEMBA Financing

INSEAD SchOlarships


INSEAD offers merit and need-based scholarships to offset tuition fees for GEMBA candidates whose profiles will help further the programme's objectives as a vehicle for promoting international leadership and business practice


You can apply for a scholarship following the interview or the INSEAD Assessment decision.

Participants need to be self-funded or partially sponsored to a maximum of 50%.

For all INSEAD scholarships we require applicants to provide accurate details about their financial situation. Please make sure to complete the application profile form.

If for some reason you do not join the original GEMBA class for which you have been admitted and you start your INSEAD GEMBA with a different intake, your scholarship application(s) will not be transferred automatically. You will have to re-apply for scholarships offered to that class and compete against the new cohort.

We encourage you to limit your applications to a maximum of 2 scholarships.


Total amount of financial aid received by a participant generally does not exceed 25% of tuition. Scholarships are granted under various criteria detailed below. 

Scholarships will be awarded by a Committee composed of INSEAD GEMBA faculty and admission staff. No appeal process is offered.

The award is deducted from the last instalment of tuition fees.
