Insper is an independent, nonprofit institution that is recognized internationally as a center of excellence in teaching and knowledge generation and that seeks to contribute to organizations and society, with its governance model aligned with the highest standards of the world’s best universities.
Its contributions include applied research in the fields of administration and economics focused on topics of particular relevance to Brazil’s social and economic development, as well as the scholarship fund, which gives young students with academic potential a chance to pursue an undergraduate degree.
In addition to reinvesting all of its operational profits back into its activities, Insper also has fundraising initiatives that make possible the development of new academic and institutional projects and bolster its financial independence.
The objective of fundraising is to collect, through donations from individuals and organizations, funds for three main fronts: the scholarship fund for undergraduate studies, academic and research projects and projects to build new facilities.
The Scholarship Program, which is maintained by the scholarship fund, has the main objective of offering opportunities to youth with high academic capacity who require financial assistance to pursue undergraduate studies at Insper. The school offers non-repayable and partially repayable full scholarships, with the discount of the latter varying from 30% to 80%.
Insper fosters social inclusion and diversity in its student body to promote an environment that encourages the exchange of experiences and values and that adds value to society.
Since the program’s creation in 2004, the fund has already supported 235 scholarship students, of whom 105 already have graduated, and has also invested R$8 million in scholarship grants.
The fund is formed by three revenue sources:
