Financial assistance

In the wake of the success of its Asia-Pacific Doctorate Scholarship Programme initiative, EDHEC-Risk Institute is introducing a series of awards, bursaries and scholarships aimed at helping participants from all regions fund their doctoral programme. These new schemes aim to alleviate high travelling costs, assist self-funded students to address funding challenges and reward EDHEC-Risk Institute partners that sponsor their executives for the PhD in Finance programme.

These financial assistance schemes include:

  • A mobility award representing up to 10% off the first year tuition fees for participants who have to travel more than 3,000 miles to reach campus (not means-tested, not merit-based);
  • A (means-tested) bursary programme targeted at self-funded participants who require funding assistance but are not eligible for scholarship, which may represent up to EUR10,000 off annual tuition fees;
  • A merit-based and means-tested scholarship programme opened to all self-funded participants who reside and work in low or middle-income countries, which may cover up to 50% of tuition fees;
  • A rebate of 20% off PhD in Finance tuition-fees for organisations that, at the time of payment, are endowing a research chair at EDHEC-Risk Institute.
