Help us develop economic knowledge for a better world
Philanthropic support has played a significant role in the creation of the Toulouse School of Economics (TSE) and in its development ever since.
After two remarkable fundraising campaigns where TSE raised €33M euros from corporate donations the first time (2008 – 2012) and €56M euros from both corporate and individual donations the second time (2016 – 2020), today we would like to continue our fundraising efforts to meet the needs of our students and young researchers (PhD).

" It is clear that if I had not been able to benefit from the association's scholarship in 2015, I would not have been able to start my thesis in the Toulouse School of Economics research center. The scholarship allowed me to focus on my studies, instead of juggling a job on the side. I am currently in the 2nd year of the PhD and am studying how algorithms and platforms affect the economy, and consequently, how to design and regulate them. "
" I was delighted to receive the scholarship offered by the Jean-Jacques Laffont Association. As a young student in Economics, I have always wanted to participate in the cutting-edge research that takes place at Toulouse School of Economics and the association has been a real springboard to do so. "
“ Your generous financial support is very important for me […] I would like to make my own contributions to mitigate these developments problems and help the disadvantaged people for a better life. ”
" The scholarship changed huge aspects of my life. Without the scholarship I wouldn’t have been able to come to France, to TSE…It has helped me be more ambitious with what I want to do ”
" This scholarship helps cover my living expenses in the transition period after the Job Market. It is very meaningful to me as it allows me to focus on my research projects and freely enjoy my remaining time at TSE. The scholarship also inspires me to give back to the community when I make advances in my career. "
" It is my great honor to receive this special scholarship for Chinese Ph.D. candidates. I will use it wisely to cover my living expenses at Toulouse. Furthermore, I hope I can donate and help Chinese students at TSE in the future. I am working with Ulrich Hege at TSE in the finance group. In Fall 2022, I will join Peking University, HSBC Business School, as an assistant professor. "
"It was a great honor and pleasure to participate in the communication coaching sessions financed by the generous TSE alumni. I feel more confident to demonstrate my talents and the excellence of the TSE Ph.D. program in the future Job Market. I also wish to contribute to our TSE community after my graduation.”
