About The Program

Every year, the École des Ponts Business School offers a limited number of partial tuition fee waiver scholarships. The following scholarship schemes are available to cIM participants:

Celia Russo Memorial Scholarship (merit-based or need-based scholarship)

To Request a Scholarship

To be considered for an École des Ponts Business School Scholarship, you will need to include with your application a letter of motivation stating your interest in being considered for an École des Ponts Business School scholarship and in which you cover the nature and amount of your financial need as well as highlight any professional, personal, and/or academic qualities and achievements that you feel support your request.

The Celia Russo Memorial Scholarship

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the program in 2007 and to commemorate the work and memory of Celia Russo, the founder of the School, we launched a yearly scheme for the award of a number of scholarships for the École des Ponts Business School education programs. In keeping with Celia’s belief in the value of cross-cultural interaction and the strong international focus of the School, the tuition-reduction scholarships will be open to citizens of all countries, worldwide.

For our undergraduate programs partial scholarships will only be awarded on a financial-need basis as well as the candidates’ overall profile, skills and ability. Our intention is to give people, who otherwise would not have the opportunity, the ability to participate in our programs.

We anticipate that we will see outstanding candidates from the emerging economies of Asia, Africa, South America, Central and Eastern Europe being awarded substantial or even full scholarships whilst candidates from wealthier countries with higher, though not fully sufficient, levels of income may be awarded partial scholarships.

If you have further questions on scholarship schemes and eligibility, please contact our Admissions Office.
