Alumni & Friends Merit Award scholarship initiative

The objective of this new scholarship fundraising initiative is to increase retention of top candidates admitted to the Master’s programs. A unique aspect of the Merit Award is that donors to the scholarship fund will have the option to participate in the recipient selection process. As such, it will allow Barcelona GSE Alumni and other members of the community to play a role in shaping the next cohort of Master’s students.
