IESE and ONCE Foundation Scholarship

Every year, IESE and the ONCE Foundation award scholarships to disabled students, which cover up to 65% of the program fees. Through this initiative, IESE and the ONCE Foundation promote the integration and ongoing development of the disabled within the business community. These scholarships are offered to candidates with a legally recognized disability of at least 33%.

As part of the evaluation process, applicants must submit a copy of their certificate of disability and complete the scholarship application. Scholarship recipients are selected by a committee comprised by members of the ONCE Foundation and the IESE Executive MBA.

The application deadline is June 1 and award decisions are communicated within a month.


Candidates admitted to the Executive MBA program are eligible for scholarships.

Special consideration is paid to those with economic constraints. Applicants may apply for scholarships in more than one category, but only one will be awarded per candidate.

If a candidate withdraws before the start of the program, admission will be extended, but the scholarship will be relinquished.



The jury bases its decisions on the following criteria:

  • Academic merit, including GMAT score, Executive Assessment and IESE Admissions Test.
  • Professional experience and leadership.
  • Proven impact in business and in society.
  • Entrepreneurial drive, ability to innovate and international trajectory.
  • Personal motivations for requesting the scholarship.
