The Foundation supports ESSEC’s young talent

The first annual meeting of the Foundation, the Get Together evening on October 13, 2015 brought together donors, scholarship students, student associations and recipients of the Foundation Faculty Awards.

More than 130 donors came to meet the scholarship students, taking part in workshops led by Foundation Faculty Award winners, and engaging with student associations and start-ups in the Talent and Discovery village. The evening was rich in connections, interaction and learning, and provided the opportunity to thank the Classes of 74, 75, 79 and 84 who raised funds for the Class Gift 2014 initiative.
Thanks to their generosity, and the generosity of donors who supported the Scholarship support project, the Foundation was able to support 178 students in 2014.

“I’ve met young people who are keen to study at ESSEC but see the tuition fees as an obstacle. I was fortunate to go to ESSEC without having to worrying about the cost, and am happy to help give other young people that opportunity today.”
