Scholarship guide - Admissions
You can view all available INSEAD scholarships here. The process for applying for scholarships and their deadlines along with other important scholarship considerations are outlined below.
Allocation of scholarships by round
Scholarship applications for Round 1 candidates should be submitted after applicants receive their final admission decisions, whereas scholarship applications for Rounds 2 and 3 candidates should be submitted at the interview stage of the admission process.
In addition, please note the following important information:
Submitting your applications (registration and deadlines)
To access the scholarship application form on-line, you will first need to register.
Important : your name should be indicated exactly as on your admission application.
Upon registering, you will receive your personal login ID and password to navigate through the scholarship website. Throughout the period that the on-line application is available, you can modify or withdraw your scholarship applications as you please. You can track the status of your on-line application with the help of your scholarship login ID and password. Please note that the scholarship portal is not part of the platform for the admitted candidates and therefore you will need to register for it separately.
Scholarship application deadlines
Applications must be complete and submitted by midnight Central European Time (GMT +1) on the day of deadline. We regret we cannot accept any scholarship applications after the deadlines as the site will be closed. All scholarship applications will be reviewed after the deadline. There is no need to apply too early; just remain within the indicated time frame.
Notification of outcome
All scholarships have specific eligibility criteria based on a combination of merit and financial need. Candidates will be judged on the quality of their scholarship essays and the degree to which they meet the eligibility criteria. As a part of the merit criteria, the Committee will consider the academic and professional achievements and merit distinctions received. Please note that neither admissions essays nor GMAT results will be considered as part of the scholarship review process.
The group of need-based scholarships is primarily focused on emerging and developing markets. Therefore, when reviewing these scholarship applications, financial need is the main criterion. Please note that a number of supporting documents will be required for the need-based scholarships. You will find these documents listed under the need-based scholarship description.
Company sponsorships are considered as external financial aid. We would discourage candidates who are sponsored from applying for INSEAD scholarships. Our scholarship offering is designed primarily for those with fewer resources.
