INSEAD Alumni Fund (IAF) Diversity Scholarship(s)

Description:

The INSEAD Alumni Fund (IAF), created in 1977, raises funds from alumni for INSEAD's development. One area of alumni support is for scholarships to underwrite the breadth of diversity of participants on the programme: country of origin, academic and professional background, gender etc. The IAF Diversity scholarships support INSEAD's commitment to bringing outstanding men and women professionals from emerging/developing countries to the MBA programme, especially those who may have difficulty affording it. A major source of funding for the IAF Diversity Scholarships is from Class Reunion Gifts made to the School when classes return to campus every five years. The recipients of IAF Diversity Scholarships may expect alumni to actively encourage them to make their own contribution to the Alumni Fund in the future.

Eligibility:

Several awards will be allocated per class to candidates who can justify the difficulty in raising sufficient finances for their studies at INSEAD. Preference will be given to candidates residing in emerging/developing countries.
