INSEAD invites applications for the INSEAD Alumni Fund (IAF) Diversity Scholarships for international students to study for an MBA degree in Europe in 2018/2019. This scholarship was 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.
