Women are underrepresented both in Finance and Data Science. To empower and encourage them to build up their expertise and pursue a career in both fields. EDHEC Business School is launching a new scholarship: The women in Finance & Data Science Scholarship.
“EDHEC Business School takes pride in the great diversity of its student body. The Women in Finance and Data Science Scholarship is a new step towards more inclusivity in our school and beyond. It is our duty as a leading international business school to empower women into embracing promising careers in fields where the gender imbalance is still too significant,” says Michelle Sisto, Associate Dean of Graduate Studies.
To apply for Women in Finance & Data Science Scholarship, students should be enrolled in a relevant undergraduate or graduate degree program in Data Science, Analytics, Computer Science, Statistics, or Finance. They will need to submit an essay (1000-1500 words) along with their application demonstrating initiatives they have taken in the field of Data Science or Finance and what objectives they have been able to achieve in those sectors. They should also explain how the Master of their choice will contribute to their future career plan.
The scholarship covers 35 % of the tuition fees. The deadline to apply is 31 March 2022.
