Dear Vi friends,

The Virtual Institute, with support from the Government of Finland, is offering scholarships to participants of the first edition of its online course on structural transformation and industrial policy, to be held November 1 to December 19.

Based on the Vi teaching material on structural transformation and industrial policy, the objective of the course is to enhance knowledge about the links between structural transformation, industrial policy and development.

Academics, policymakers and representatives of civil society from developing countries and countries with economies in transition are eligible to participate. Applicants must hold a Master's degree in economics, international relations or political science, with coursework in development economics. Excellent knowledge of English, including technical terminology, is also required. 

Candidates who have already submitted applications need not reapply, but must ensure their contact information is up to date. Also recommended is to review, complete and strengthen their responses as needed. Please notify, should you not wish to be considered for this edition of the course.

The deadline for applications is October 22.

I hope to see many of you in the course, and that you will distribute this call for applications widely among your own networks.

Best regards,
