Donate to the Scholarship Fund

INSEAD Alumni Fund Switzerland

In 2016, Brigitte Reverdin MBA’81, as President of the INSEAD Alumni Fund Switzerland (IAF), successfully rallied fellow alumni in Switzerland to create the first endowed scholarship. A group of founding donors generously provided the initial funding and several other major donors have since made large gifts.

Additionally, each year, the Swiss alumni community donates generously to the fund as part of the global INSEAD “Force for Good” fundraising campaign. All gifts to the fund are welcome and are recorded on the donor’s personal and class gift history.

The INSEAD Alumni Fund Switzerland aims to grow its endowment to €2 million to support one or more Tech Scholarships and several Swiss Scholarships each year. These merit-based scholarships aim to attract the best talent from Switzerland to the INSEAD MBA programme.

    Why donate?

    Scholarships enable INSEAD to open its doors to talented students who embody the geographic, socio-economic and gender diversity that makes INSEAD The Business School for the World.

    Your donations are placed in a segregated account of the Swiss-based foundation, La Fondation Mondiale INSEAD, and are tax deductible for individuals and corporations. Donors receive a tax receipt from INSEAD.
