The effort starts to pay off. I recently received the notification, that I have been awarded with two scholarships. One of them really makes an impact, the other one is basically for the CV. Both of them are connected to E-Fellows.net, a career website that I joined when I started my MBA research.
IESE E-Fellows.net Scholarship – 10.000 €
This scholarship is for IESE students who are E-fellows.net members. It is directly awarded by the IESE Scholarship Committee. There are two of these scholarships and I am lucky to receive one of them. The money will directly affect the tuition payments. 5,000 € for the first year and 5,000 € for the second year. However, if your grades during the first year are bad and you have to take the Academic Evaluation Process (knowledge exam), the scholarship for the next year will be canceled.
E-Fellows.net Online Scholarship
The E-Fellows.net Online Scholarship is not about money. It gives you several German newspaper subscriptions, access to scientific databases, a mentorship program and a few free career books. Nothing fancy but a scholarship always looks good on the CV and might one day be useful.
I’m really happy that I secured these two – they will certainly make life easier and help me during the next years.
