INSEAD Antonio Borges Endowed Scholarship

About Scholarship

The Antonio Borges Endowed Scholarship has been established in memory of Antonio Borges who died in 2013 after a brave battle against cancer. A highly-respected dean of INSEAD (1993 – 2000), MBA programme dean (1986 – 1990), talented economics professor and widely-regarded business leader, Antonio Borges was also a true international, with deep connections to his native Portugal. A visionary, he shaped INSEAD's history by setting up the campus in Singapore and greatly enhancing INSEAD's research agenda. The scholarship received its first major donation in January 2014 from a generous INSEAD alumnus who kindly offered to transfer the endowed fund that he had created at INSEAD in 2008 to the Antonio Borges Endowed Scholarship. Subsequently, the scholarship has received additional funding from Antonio’s family, friends, and colleagues as well as many INSEAD alumni.


The Antonio Borges Endowed Scholarship will be awarded to candidates who demonstrate outstanding academic achievements and promise, and whose background, work experience and personal profile contribute to the breadth and depth of ‘diversity’ in the MBA programme. The scholarship does not discriminate against nationality, sex, race or religion. Preference will be given to candidates requiring financial assistance.
