International Monetary Fund calls application for IMF Youth Fellowship Contest. The COVID-19 pandemic is likely to increase poverty and inequality, further exposing weaknesses in healthcare systems, the precariousness of work, and the challenging prospects for the young of accessing opportunities they desperately need.
The 2020 IMF Youth Fellowship Contest gives the opportunity to young participants to become part of the global efforts to build forward better and join the IMF at the forefront of the response to the crisis. Participants will have a firsthand experience of the IMF virtual Annual Meetings and will be given access to attend virtual training led by IMF experts and media professionals from Politico and others to boost their skills as multimedia storytellers in the current economic environment focusing on building a better future for youth. At the end of the training, participants will submit a final piece (blog/article or video) and 4 winners will be participating in an IMF youth panel discussion and their work will be featured on IMF channels.
