To accompany its Impact future generations strategic plan, EDHEC Business School is delighted to present its new financial-support initiative, the Make an impact scholarship.
In 2015, all United Nations Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. At its core are 17 Sustainable Development Goals aimed at tackling hunger, poverty, and climate change, reducing inequality, improving health and spurring economic growth, leaving no one behind. “EDHEC Business School has vowed to play its part in achieving those goals and underscores that commitment today with the launch of its Make an impact scholarship, which reflects its motto and values”, says Michelle Sisto, Associate Dean of Graduate Programmes.
The Make an impact scholarship is open to Master in Management and Master of Science applicants. Students who want to apply for the Make an impact scholarship will need to submit an essay of 1000-1500 words along with their application, detailing their career plan. The essay should describe their prior experience, explain how the Master of their choice will contribute to their career plan and, their personal motives for making an impact on UN sustainable development goals throughout their career.
The scholarship covers 25% of tuition fees. The application deadline is 30 June 2021.
Application deadline for the Excellence scholarship extended
Because of the COVID-19 constraints on international mobility, EDHEC Business School has also decided to extend the application period for its Excellence scholarship to ease the pressure on those impacted by the crisis or uncertain about the situation in Europe. The new application deadline is 30 June 2021. The Excellence scholarship covers 30% of tuition fees.
“EDHEC prioritizes diversity, quality, and motivation. Our scholarships are designed to provide easily accessible assistance to qualified candidates who can contribute to the diverse, impact-driven learning environment we foster, says Cathy Pagan, Head of International Admissions & Development. We look forward to welcoming excellent and motivated students to one of our Master’s in Finance or Business Management programmes.”
