The Department of Finance is pleased to announce the launch of the seventh annual Department of Finance Economic Policy Competition.
This is an essay-based competition that assesses undergraduate students’ understanding of the Irish macro economy and Ireland’s policy-making system. The Competition allows students to demonstrate their sound economic analysis by preparing a policy submission, through their respective third level institution, on one of two set questions.
Following the assessment of submissions, the Competition winner will be offered a 12 week paid summer internship, working alongside economists in the Department of Finance. The successful applicant will also be presented with a certificate from the Minister for Finance.
