For Funding Resources, please post REPLY here! Empty e8 - Education for Sustainable Energy Development (ESED) - Scholarship Program

Post by gap on Thu 19 May 2011, 14:35

Education for Sustainable Energy Development [ESED]

In 2001, the e8 established, as a pilot project, a Scholarship Program to encourage and support the study of sustainable energy development worldwide. These scholarships were made available to outstanding students from developing countries and economies in transition, for a period of up to two years at the Masters.

In 2004, the Scholarship Programme was evaluated and a comprehensive assessment of options for supporting ESED was prepared. The e8 members decided to establish a five-year Programme of Action, consisting of the following programmes:
- ESED Scholarship Programme
- Network of Scholars
- Internships

What is the purpose of the e8 scholarship?
The purpose of the e8 scholarship is to support outstanding students pursuing advanced studies in sustainable energy development and to encourage meaningful contributions to the collective body of knowledge about this subject.

The e8 considers an outstanding student to be one
- who graduates with excellent grades in the top 20% of her/his class
- who is determined to advance her/his knowledge and understanding
- who has a history of community involvement
- who is committed to sustainable energy
- who is committed to return and contribute to her/his home country

Who is eligible?
To be eligible to apply for this scholarship, students must
- plan to undertake studies at the Masters level in areas directly related to sustainable energy development
- be citizens of the developing countries and territories identified for OECD official development aid in the DAC List of ODA Recipients effective as of 2006

What are the levels of financial assistance and the duration of the scholarships?
Scholarships of US$ 23,000 per year for up to two years are offered for Masters level students. Up to ten Masters scholarships will be awarded annually.
