Fees and Funding
Every HEC PhD student is eligible to receive funding
Admissions to the HEC PhD are very selective. Therefore, HEC Paris and the HEC Foundation offer Excellence Scholarships to all PhD student. Each PhD student admitted to the program receives a full tuition waiver, an annual cost of living scholarship as well as financial support for conference presentations, research visiting positions and job market events.
The GREGHEC offers financial support to students with specific research needs that are not covered by the conference and visiting budget.

Cost of living Scholarships
Each PhD Student benefits from the HEC Foundation cost of living Scholarships without any selection criteria.
HEC provides a full tuition waiver to all its PhD students without condition of academic background or origin.
Research Visits and Conferences
An integral part of the HEC Paris PhD experience is the emphasis on a visiting research period and academic conference presentations. The PhD Office funds these activities in accordance with the program regulations.
Research and teaching assistantships RA/TA
At HEC Paris we do not require from our PhD students to work as TA/RA as part of the scholarship although this can be a very valuable experience and provides an additional source of income.
HEC PhD students are members of the GREGHEC, which is a joint research center between HEC and CNRS. The GREGHEC attributes a significant part of its budget to PhD research projects to support needs for financial support.
