Launch of the Global Impact Association (GIA)

The newly launched Global Impact Association (GIA) aims to contribute to a better, more sustainable and inclusive system, by developing world-class trade professionals and scholars. Special attention is given to students from low and middle-income countries.

The Global Impact Association (GIA) offers several scholarships for talented students from low and middle-income countries to pursue advanced master studies at the World Trade Institute (WTI), one of the world’s leading academic institutions in the field of international economics and law.

The scholarships available for young professionals interested in the MILE and TRAIL+ (LL.M.) Master's programmes are:

1. Penglai Scholarship for a Taiwanese national

2. Penglai Scholarship for a national from a least developed country (LDC)

3. Patricia Murillo Montesdeoca (PMM) Scholarship in memory of the late Patricia Murillo Montesdeoca, a human rights activist from Ecuador and wife of the WTI’s Director of Studies, Prof. Peter Van den Bossche. The GIA Executive Committee intends to give preference to female students from Latin America

In addition, several scholarships are available for WTI students, who want to do an internship after their studies at the WTI.
