Scholarship for Master in Applied Labour Economics for Development

The Master in Applied Labour Economics for Development (MALED) of the International Training Centre of the ILO is organized in partnership with the University of Turin, with the support of the International Labour Organization and in collaboration with the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (DIAL/IRD), the LABORatorio R. Revelli, the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (CEPAL) and the World Bank.

This Master Programme is intended to prepare students and professionals from both advanced and developing countries to become experts in designing, analyzing and evaluating policies that place employment at the core of economic, social and development policy making. The Programme combines rigorous training in analytical and quantitative economic methods with development policy choices that support employment and decent work in different development contexts and legal and institutional frameworks.

A limited number of partial scholarships covering tuition fees and/or accommodation at the ITC-ILO campus are usually available for students from developing countries (ODSA eligible countries only) on a competitive basis among deserving candidates who are unable to meet the full tuition plus accommodation costs.
Scholarships do not cover international travel to and from Turin, meals (lunch and dinner), visa and passport costs, and any personal expenses (telephone and fax, coffee and beverages, local transports to town, purchase of personal items, etc.).
