The European Central Bank has launched a scholarship programme to support women pursuing a master’s degree in economics in Europe. The €10,000 per year scholarship for tuition and other related costs will be awarded to up to five female students from lower-income backgrounds.
This is a part of ECB’s initiative to address the under-representation of women in economics and to support women in their career development at the ECB. The goal is to to increase the share of women in management and senior management positions.
