Sciences Po: A centre for public debate

Equal opportunity and diversity programmeSciences Po strives to be both selective in its recruitment practices and open to all forms of talent. For the past 10 years, the university has been implementing a range of proactive measures to welcome the best students, regardless of social class, country of origin or disability.

Today, Sciences Po proudly boasts a student body of which nearly 30% receive financial support, 46% come from outside of France and students with all forms of disabilities are welcomed.

Grant programmes, a social aid policy, individual guidance: measures to support diversity and equal opportunities account for an annual investment of more than €5 million.

 

Companies, donors and institutional partners can join with Sciences Po to educate leaders from a wide variety of backgrounds, offering support for:

 

At Sciences Po, more than 200 faculty members in the fields of humanities and social sciences are studying the transformations at work in the modern world and the challenges they pose in areas such as public health, education, urban development, security, the environment and democracy all over the world.

With a firm focus on major challenges facing society, research conducted at Sciences Po fuels and enhances public debate.

Every year, Sciences Po devotes 35% of its budget to research.

By financing the development of chairs, the organisation of seminars and symposia, and the recruitment of researchers, donors and sponsors play a vital role in enhancing understanding of complex issues in today's world. 

Public and private partners can also meet strategic needs, including by commissioning research on a specific issue.   

Education

Creating multilingual campuses, requiring a year abroad, introducing the arts, online courses, international negotiation simulations... Since its creation, Sciences Po has been a constant driver of innovation, helping new teaching methods emerge and prosper.  

This perpetual revision of teaching and research methods often involves risks and requires freedom and autonomy. Donors, private sponsors and public institutions thus provide active support for these initiatives.

Partners can work directly with a particular school or campus, oversee a collective project carried out by our students, or support the university's educational undertakings by reserving their education tax for Sciences Po

Campuses

Spread throughout France on seven sites (Dijon, Le Havre, Menton, Nancy, Paris, Poitiers and Reims), Sciences Po's campuses increase the international appeal of our institution.  

Sponsors, and especially alumni, can contribute to renovating the historical and iconic heritage of their university, such as the building located at 9 Rue de la Chaise or the library located at 27 Rue Saint-Guillaume in Paris. Partners can also help finance work to make buildings accessible, contributing to the efforts of the Sciences Po Accessible programme.

Artillerie project

Create a campus reminiscent of Oxford in the heart of Paris: this is Sciences Po's goal with the acquisition of the Hôtel de l’Artillerie. The university aspires to move into the building in 2018, and this will be a central project for the upcoming fund-raising campaign.
