Michel David-Weill Scholarship
The Michel David-Weill Foundation has established a scholarship of excellence to attract the best and brightest American students to pursue their postgraduate education at Sciences Po in Paris. The scholarship is awarded every year to one American student who exemplifies the core values embodied by Michel David-Weill: excellence, leadership, multiculturalism, tolerance and high achievement. Candidates are selected on the basis of their literary and scholastic accomplishments, their capacity to analyze critically, their character, instincts to lead, and their commitment to community – local or global.
The Michel David-Weill Scholarship is named after its founder, a graduate of Sciences Po and until May 2005, the Chairman of Lazard LLC, President and Managing Director of Lazard Frères Banque, and Partner and President of Maison Lazard SAS.
The Scholarship carries a monetary value of $80,000 spanning two years of study and covers the full cost of enrollment at Sciences Po, including tuition and fees, housing, books and other living/travel expenses.
To date, ten scholarships have been awarded to: Samuel Miles, Benjamin Schenkel, Katherine Jinyi Li, Xavier Flory, Eric Falcon, Emily de la Bruyère, Zachary Young, Brittany Ebeling, Jacob Kasel and Riya Verma.
