One out of four EDHEC students now benefits from a scholarship awarded by the school.
This proportion of scholarship students is quite exceptional in the universe of the French Grandes Ecoles and is a source of great pride for us.
At EDHEC, we want to do everything possible to ensure that no student, for lack of sufficient resources, is forced to give up our excellent teaching or academic experience at one of our prestigious universities abroad.
"I give because I would like others to live what I experienced as a student. This years at EDHEC have been very decisive in my life."
The EDHEC For All scholarship programme means something to me because I believe in the bufferly effect.
A little generosity can go a long way in changing the life of a student and will open up to a world he would not be able to access.
I find it rewarding, I have a “feel good” effect in giving. The amount of the gift does not really matter; it is all about making the gesture. Anyone can make a difference
« Without the EDHEC scholarship, I simply would not have come to university because of a lack of funds. The scholarship therefore allows me to study subjects I love and to carry out my professional project.
Above all, it proves that solidarity exists, which is why I thank all the donors who, in addition to giving me the opportunity to study at EDHEC, have given me a good example.
I will not forget it and hope one day to be able to give back.”

Our objective, with your support, is to award 150 scholarships in 2019/2020 and to achieve this we need funding of €450,000
If 8 donors like you donated €500 today, a new €4,000 EDHEC For All grant would be immediately funded!
Giving the best of EDHEC to our students also means giving our students and recent graduates the means to create and develop their start-ups under the best conditions.
Entrepreneurship is deeply rooted in our DNA, with the founders of EDHEC being entrepreneurs themselves. As more and more of our students embark on this path each year, we have increased our incubation capacity with 40 desks at Station F, the world's largest start-up campus, which offers them an exceptional environment to succeed.
This is the case for Grégoire de Scorbiac and Nicolas Drouault, both of whom graduated from EDHEC in 2016, who founded Canard Street.

"Being accompanied by the EDHEC incubator at the end of our studies was a decisive asset in refining and developing our start-up Canard Street, a street food concept that serves up duck in all its forms. We invest a lot of energy into our company, but we get an incredible sense of fulfilment!
Today, we opened a second restaurant in Lille, a third in Paris, and we will participate in the We Love Green festival for which we have been selected to serve 55,000 meals. The adventure has only just begun for us who like a challenge, and all this is also due to the EDHEC Giving donors.”
