We offer scholarships to students from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds who are interested in a career in market research.

We work with companies that sponsor the scholarship and with national and international market research associations that help us organise and carry out the nomination and selection process together with the academic institution.

Our intention with the scholarship programme is to fund post-graduate studies, i.e. a Master degree or equivalent. However, if there are any other needs we are willing to discuss if it is a good fit.

How you can support

If you are a market researcher, a national market research association, an NGO involved in research or a university interested in a scholarship in your country please contact us at info@esomarfoundation.org

Partners & Sponsors

We are always on the lookout for partners and sponsors. If you are an organisation looking to understand more on how you can support us, please find more information here or contact:  info@esomarfoundation.org
