Our pioneering Equal Opportunity programme was initiated in 2001 to ensure the most talented, deserving students have access to Sciences Po, whatever their social or cultural background.
The latest addition to our social responsibility strategy, this experimental programme supports around 100 scholarship high school students. The goal? To help these students prepare for the transition to higher education and give them the confidence to aim high.
Sciences Po takes a proactive approach to social inclusion, which translates into a unique tuition fee and financial aid policy. Contributing to a scholarship fund or creating your own scholarship helps deserving students make the most of their potential.
Every year, Sciences Po takes in a class of asylum-seeking and refugee students. To further our engagement, in 2018 we launched the Professional Certificate for Young Refugees, which enables participants to acquire skills suited to the French job market and improve their employability.
Sponsored by 18 companies, the Accessible Sciences Po programme supports students with disabilities from admission to their entry into the workforce, ensuring they can study in the best possible conditions.
The multiculturalism and academic excellence of our student body are key factors in Sciences Po’s international appeal. We’ve made Africa a priority by creating new merit-based scholarships and developing the international mobility fund.
