Concerning the Award:

Interns are assigned cutting-edge research in macroeconomics or a related field, supervised by an IMF colleague (with the exception of an internship in the IMF’s Legal Department). Fund interns carry out a research project and write a research paper under the supervision of experienced colleagues. At the end of the internship, papers may be presented to IMF staff, and those of the highest quality may be published internally to the IMF.
