We are offering grants, of €10,000 each, to five female economics students. Are you a woman about to start, or already enrolled in, a Master’s in economics at a university or business school in Europe? If so, our Women in Economics Scholarship could be for you!


The funding is intended to help finance the recipients’ studies. If selected, you’ll also have the opportunity to visit the European Central Bank to gain an insight into our cutting-edge research, and to learn about the career opportunities we offer.
