Thanks to the EDHEC Global MBA's transparent guaranteed scholarship policy, separate request for financial aid/scholarships is not needed. Sholarships are awarded automatically according to specific categories.

The EDHEC Global MBA's guaranteed scholarship policy is still in place for the next intake, providing a reduction in tuition fees of up to 60% and bringing fees to 15 390 euros with early enrolmentfor the complete 10 month programme. 

Candidates are reminded that it is not necessary to make a special scholarship request as they are awarded automatically according to the criteria valued by the selection committee in a transparent 
list of scholarships

It is possible to apply without the GMAT in a first place, secure a 1st Nationality scholarship (if accepted and enrolled), and then 
upgrade your scholarship automatically once the GMAT score is reported. Note that it is also possible to retake the GMAT any number of times before term starts, in order to reach the next scholarship value. 

One of the MBA participants commented, "One of the reasons I chose EDHEC for my MBA program was the large variety of scholarships offered. Compared to other schools, I found the EDHEC scholarship policy to be more transparent and more generous. Moreover, each scholarship is obviously aimed at increasing the quality of the program: the "1st Nationality" scholarship and the Diversity" scholarship increase the student diversity; the "Excellence" scholarship attracts high-GMAT scorers; the "Global 500" scholarship and "Entrepreneurship" scholarship attract both employees of large companies and entrepreneur profiles. I found the awarding conditions listed on EDHEC website so clear that it allowed me to better plan my budget as I moved forward in my MBA application." 

One American student who missed out on the 1st Nationality Scholarship but was awarded an Experience Scholarship decided to retake the GMAT since he knew that he could do better on the test. "I was motivated to do this because the difference in tuition payments was sizeable" he states. "I also knew for sure that if I hit the score I was aiming for, I'd get the corresponding scholarship. There was nothing ambiguous or misleading in the policy. In the end the financial rewards of retaking the GMAT offset the couple weeks of prep time it took to ensure a better score and a higher scholarship."
