Jacqueline NOEL Scholarship

The Fondation Jacqueline NOEL, under the aegis of the Fondation de Luxembourg, grants merit-based scholarships for for recently graduated doctoral students of the University of Luxembourg having defended their thesis in the fields of Law, Economics, Finance and Political Sciences.

The Fondation Jacqueline NOEL was created in homage to Jacqueline NOEL, a world citizen and fervent European. 

Jacqueline NOEL shared the belief of Nelson Mandela, a figure whom she had the chance to meet during her career, that "education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." 

Born during the German occupation, Mrs. NOEL grew up to be a dedicated student, earning a Doctorate in Economic Sciences from the Université Libre in Brussels. She began her career as a researcher at the World Bank, then at the European Investment Bank.

The foundation was created in her memory by her dear friend in the hopes of perpetuating Mrs. NOEL's values and ideals, namely the belief that hard work and dedication can lead to fulfilment in one's life while creating positive change for the benefit of all.
