Benjamin HEC/X 20

HEC Foundation scholarship recipient

The Foundation is extremely important because it allows us to fully experience HEC

My name is Benjamin. I am from Montluçon in Auvergne, a small town where I was a scholarship holder at the time. In high school, I had absolutely no intention of doing a Grande Ecole because the burden of tuition fees was too heavy.
Knowing that a school like HEC finances scholarships for students based on social criteria is very stimulating. It really made me want to surpass myself! I knew then that if I passed the competition, I would get financial help, my loan would be lighter and I could live more fully my schooling. This perspective has really been a great motivation for me!
Thanks to the support I received, I am going to do a double degree and I was able to go to Mexico last year in exchange. That experience there was so rewarding. It changed my way of thinking and seeing the world!
The Foundation is extremely important because it allows us to fully experience HEC and because, without the generosity of donors, students like me would not have access to schools of excellence. 
Many thanks to all!
