Each HEC Paris PhD student benefits from a cost of living scholarship without any selection criteria of origin or academic background. The scholarship is financed mainly by the HEC Paris and the HEC Foundation. At HEC Paris, the cost of living scholarship is not tied to a research assistantship. Therefore, TA/RA and teaching represents an extra income.

The 2021 September intake will benefit from the following Scholarship scheme:

Year 1 Year 2 Year 3  Year 4 Year 5
€ 23,000 € 23,000 € 23,000 € 23,000 € 23,000


Pregnancy during PhD

Completing a PhD is a long journey and should not come in the way of having a baby. At HEC Paris, female students benefit from a paid maternity leave and up to six months additional scholarship financing to finalize their dissertation serenely.
