Scholarships for Internships
The Thomas Cottier Scholarship was set up to honour Thomas Cottier, the founder and first Managing Director and Director of Studies of the World Trade Institute (WTI).
This Scholarship allows one WTI master’s student per year to pursue an unpaid internship at an international organisation, diplomatic mission, non-governmental organisation or law firm active in the field of international economic law and policy.
The Executive Committee of the GIA will decide on the award of the Thomas Cottier Scholarship.
The amount of financial support awarded is a maximum of CHF 3000 for an internship of three months, or CHF 1000 per month if the internship is for a period shorter than three months.
The John H. Jackson (JHJ) Scholarship was established to honour John Jackson’s legacy, the most influential academic of his era in the field of international trade law and policy.
Prof. Jackson was a long-term friend and supporter of the WTI. Established in close consultation with his family, the JHJ Scholarship offers financial support to one deserving WTI master’s student each year to pursue an unpaid internship at an NGO or public institution. During their internship, the students will be expected to work on a multidisciplinary project relating to trade and/or investment law and policy.
The decision on the JHJ Scholarship award will be taken by the Executive Committee of the GIA on the advice of the JHJ Scholarship Committee, chaired by Dr Lee Ann Jackson.
The amount of financial support awarded is a maximum of CHF 4500 for an internship of three months, or CHF 1500 per month if the internship is for a period shorter than three months.
