Make a donation to Sciences Po

By joining the donor community, you can play an essential role in our efforts to strengthen Sciences Po’s position among the world’s leading universities and attract top talents. Your gift will directly contribute to achieving our ambitions for excellence and openness.

Your commitment helps us support the students who need it most and ensure that they can fulfil their potential. Thanks to your donation, we can continue to offer and expand our range of world-class teaching programmes, particularly in critical areas such as environmental change and the digital transition. To equip students to make a positive difference in an increasingly complex world, it is essential that we diversify our teaching methods, foster interdisciplinarity and break down knowledge silos.

“Sciences Po was a vital turning point in my life, personally and professionally. Over four years, I completed and rounded out my initial education with original methods, largely inspired by university methods. I also discovered a real open-mindedness and the Sciences Po ‘spirit’. The degree opened up tremendously exciting career opportunities for me. Today, supporting Sciences Po is about perpetuating that by helping young people from all walks of life benefit from the same advantages. And it’s a way of thanking this school that gave me so much.” 

Christine Jacglin, class of 1986, donor
