(Click here or on the image to view a chat on the International Arbitration Program and Young ICCA scholarship.)
The scholarship winner is chosen on the basis of an essay competition and an assessment of skills and academic achievements. To be considered for this scholarship, applicants must submit a written essay of no less than 2,000 words. Essays should address recent developments in the area of international arbitration in the applicant’s home jurisdiction, such as:
- Passage or entry into force of a new arbitration law;
- Establishment of a specialized court for matters related to arbitration;
- Recent court case on enforcement of or challenge to arbitral awards, interim measures, etc.;
- Recent, prominent arbitral award rendered (if available); or
- Other recent developments in the area of international arbitration, such as opening of a new arbitral institution.
Absent such recent developments in the applicant’s home jurisdiction, applicants may detail their passion for the study and practice of international arbitration in their written essay.
