INSEAD MBA Scholarships
INSEAD's goal is to recruit the best and brightest to join our school, regardless of their backgrounds or financial situations. If it has always been your dream to pursue a top-ranked MBA programme, we are here to help.
Over the last three years, we have doubled our scholarship funds which has enabled us to offer higher grants to more participants. There are over 150 types of scholarships available, which apply to both our campuses in Fontainebleau and Singapore.
Three categories of scholarships are available to you: need-based, non-need based (awarded based on nationality, professional background, leadership abilities, or any combination of these criteria), and spot scholarships which are awarded immediately without the need for applications based on exceptional admissions profiles.
The scholarship helped me in making the decision among the MBA offers I received because financial consideration is important to me. It then offered me the opportunity to study in a diverse environment and reflect on my business knowledge and experience at the right timing.
Natasha Luo MBA'22J
Senior Associate at Deloitte & Touche Inc
The scholarship helped me improve my confidence on my financial ability to attend INSEAD. Even though I knew that the ROI will run for a lifetime.
Albert Chen MBA'22D
Senior consultant at Orphoz
Communicate why you deserve the scholarship/financial aid, not only because of your financial challenges, but how the scholarship/financial aid and support of the donor enables and encourages you to maximize your INSEAD experience, how the INSEAD experience will inspire you to ‘give back’ and ‘pay it forward’.
Therese Joson MBA'22J
Group Corporate Development Manager at Miya Health
Thanks to the scholarship, I was able to bridge the gap between my own funds and the full cost of the degree (program fees + cost of life). Therefore, I will graduate debt-free.
William Kneuss MBA'22D
Procurement Controller at Nestrade
The scholarship gave me the financial flexibility to quit my full time job early and to complete a pre-MBA internship in a new industry and geography (Paris).
