(31 March 2010)  The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) has opened the application process for its XI Summer School on Latin American Economies to be held from July 1 to September 30 this year at Commission headquarters in Santiago, Chile.

The full-time, three-month course is geared especially at students who are currently enrolled in post-graduate or Ph.D. programs in economics or economic development. A first level university degree in economics, development or related fields, as well as fluency in Spanish and English, are required.

Applications may be submitted until May 24. The list of accepted applicants will be announced as of June 4, at latest. Selected students are responsible for the costs of travel and accommodations, and are required to have health insurance in Chile. ECLAC does not provide scholarships.

Through this School, ECLAC seeks to introduce the new generations of economists to its research on issues such as productive development and structural changes in the region's economies; the impact of an open economy on growth, employment and income distribution; and market deregulation, privatization, innovation and advances in the economics of climate change, among others.

The Summer School is organized by ECLAC's Production, Productivity and Management Division and was created through an agreement between the Commission and Latin American and European universities.
