Any candidate who has applied to the MBA Program will automatically be considered for their Excellence and Diversity scholarships by the HEC Paris MBA Scholarship Committee.

In order to be considered for the Forte and L’Oreal scholarships, you must submit your essay at the same time as your application to the MBA program.

Scholarships are awarded in various amounts, and it is the Scholarship Committee that determines the amount of aid being awarded to each candidate. The committee takes into consideration many aspects of your application, including your essays, your background and personal work history, your GMAT score, and the results of your two interviews with HEC Paris MBA alumni.

Their scholarship deadlines run parallel to the deadlines for applying to the program. So you must submit your MBA application in order to be considered for any of the HEC Paris MBA scholarships. The last essay of your application is reserved for any additional information you would like to share with the committee for the Excellence and Diversity scholarships.

If you would like to learn more about your potential eligibility for scholarships, they invite you to contact the Marketing and Recruitment Manager for your region.

If you are a scholarship recipient, you will be informed by an Admissions Officer at the time of the final decision of your application. The scholarships will be deducted from the final installment of the MBA tuition fee.

All applicants admitted into the HEC Paris MBA will have the opportunity to apply for scholarships. They are able to offer students over €1,000,000 in aid every year thanks to the work of the HEC Foundation.

Just as it is important to have a long-term career plan, it is also crucial that you plan how you are going to finance your MBA studies. An MBA is a significant investment, in terms of both time and money, so a solid financial plan is necessary.

At HEC Paris, they want to make paying for your MBA as easy and straightforward as possible, with a range of scholarships and funding options available to you. Please be aware that these lists are not exhaustive. Do your own research and read through all the information carefully.
