Making a difference through scholarships

Giving to Scholarships allows us to uphold our values of diversity at INSEAD
Giving to Scholarships allows us to uphold our values of diversity at INSEAD

At INSEAD, scholarships mean more than financial aid. Scholarships keep our school competitive, advance our mission and expand our diversity. They enable the world’s most talented students to choose INSEAD and maintain the school’s unique educational environment that makes learning at INSEAD a transformational experience and a hallmark of excellence. 

Classrooms without borders 

Throughout her career as a global executive, Christina Law MBA’91D has given back to INSEAD – whether by donating to MBA scholarships, serving on the INSEAD and Campaign Board or establishing two scholarships: the Christina Law MBA’91D Endowed Scholarship for Asian Women and the Mr & Mrs Lo Ling Endowed Scholarship. 

Law’s motivation for giving is as inspiring as her professional trajectory. The Hong Kong native wants to expand INSEAD’s scholarships to attract more top students from diverse countries, nationalities and backgrounds. She also wants to empower more talented women to earn an MBA from INSEAD.

Law also has personal reasons for giving back. Nearly 30 years ago, when she received an admission offer from INSEAD, she realised that she could barely afford the MBA programme’s tuition. Her father, however, “didn’t think twice about supporting my studies,” she says, and helped fund her education. This act of generosity paved the way for what became a life-altering experience: At INSEAD, Law discovered a new sense of self as she experienced challenges that tested her resolve, transformed her perspective and opened her eyes to new possibilities. 

Today, in honour of her parents and her INSEAD education, Law wants to pay it forward by helping “high-potential candidates facing the financial challenges I once had,” she says.

Paving the way…

Bella Chou MBA’20J, recipient of The Christina Law MBA’91D Scholarship, benefitted directly from Law’s generous spirit, and similarly believes in lifting other women up. Passionate about technology and innovation, the Taiwan national hopes to use the knowledge, skills and networks she gains at INSEAD to help pave the way for more women leaders in her field. 

…to make a difference

Others, like Adam Rouhana MBA’20J from the US, hope to realise ambitious plans with the help of an INSEAD education, plans which may not have materialised without a helping hand. Rouhana, recipient of the Palestine Sylff Scholarship, co-founded the Diyalo Foundation to increase access to free, high-quality primary education in rural Nepal. In the long-run, he hopes to support global efforts to level the playing field through the use of technology, so that all students, regardless of income or geography, have access to the best educational tools and experiences. 

To attract the best candidates from around the world – like Law, Chou and Rouhana – scholarships are essential, and could mean the difference between a student accepting a place at INSEAD and having to decline it. We hope that you will consider making a gift to Scholarships today so that we can continue to attract the most talented, inspiring and ambitious students and do what INSEAD does best – equip them to make a real difference in business and society.
