The HEC Foundation  provides generous funding to stimulate top-level academic research at HEC Paris. It offers ample research grants to professors and other researchers at HEC Paris. Many of these research fundings offered in annual or multiyear grants benefit HEC Paris' PhD students who collaborate in the funded projects. 

Supported by individual Alumni and over 40 corporate partners, the HEC Foundation is the main source of funding for PhD students.
