Leading Forex platform providers FxPro are offering students the opportunity to earn a grant worth £3,000 along with a summer internship at FxPro’s London based offices.
Students starting an undergraduate degree course in 2012-2013 studying economics, finance or a closely related subject at a participating university will be eligible to enter the competition. In order to take part, students must submit a 1,000 – 1,500 word essay showcasing their knowledge and interest in the financial industry.
The essay question options are as follows;
• Will the Chinese Yuan become a reserve currency?
• Could a political union save the euro?
• Is government borrowing good or bad for a currency?
All essays will be judged by FxPro’s Chief Strategist Michael Derks and Chief Economist Simon Smith before a successful applicant is announced. The chosen essay will be published on FxPro’s UK website.
