INSEAD Pot Family Foundation Scholarship Award


This award was created with the generous support of the Pot Family Foundation (Wiet Pot, MBA’82 and family). The foundation has a strong commitment to supporting educational opportunities for talented students. Designed to help outstanding African MBA candidates pursue a world-class MBA at INSEAD, this award will also help to increase the representation of Africans in the classroom and uphold INSEAD’s hallmark of diversity and global perspective.


One INSEAD Pot Family Foundation Scholarship will be awarded each year to African candidates who demonstrate outstanding professional and personal achievements, with a commitment to contribute to the breadth of diversity on the programme. They should possess outstanding academic achievements, leadership experience and growth potential. To be eligible for the INSEAD Pot Family Foundation Scholarship, candidates must also be a national of an African country and have spent a substantial part of their lives, and received part of their prior education in Africa. Preference will be given to candidates who reside in the region and the scholarship will be awarded to those who require financial assistance.
