Education for Sustainable Energy Development (ESED) Scholarships

Deadline: 11 March 2011 (yearly)

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.

Education for Sustainable Energy Development (ESED) was selected by the e8 as the theme for the 2004-2005 Chairmanship Year. The year 2005 marked the start of the UN Decade for Education and thus constituted an opportunity for e8 leadership and profile in the area of education with a focus on sustainable energy development. An e8 report on ESED in Africa, Asia and Latin America provide the background for this selection.
