The Indeed Endowed Scholarship aims to encourage and help those from atypical backgrounds attend the INSEAD MBA Programme.
The scholarship has been established by Indeed, the world’s leading job site, and its founders Paul Forster and Rony Kahan, both class of 1994 graduates of the School.
The scholarship supports students with backgrounds that are not typical of the majority of MBA entrants, both within business, such as entrepreneurial ventures, and outside business, such as public sector, non-profit, academic, media and creative professions.
The Indeed Scholarship aims to make an MBA more affordable for such individuals, reducing their debt burden and opening up broader career and entrepreneurial options after graduation.
By helping to increase the number of attendees with atypical backgrounds, the Scholarship also aims to increase the professional diversity of the School and hence the richness of the academic experience for all attendees.
