About the Swiss Scholarships

During the summer 2016, the Founding Donor Group created the first INSEAD Alumni of Switzerland Endowed scholarship fund for Swiss candidates to provide financial assistance in the form of several annual scholarships. To date 8 Swiss scholarships of €20K and one €40K have been awarded. It is a sustainable endowed fund as Swiss recipients are encouraged to reimburse the award 10 years after graduation or fundraise for the matching amount.
