e8 Scholarships for Master in sustainable energy development

Established in 2001 to support outstanding students in advanced studies of sustainable energy development , the e8 Scholarship Programme offers two-year scholarships to Masters and Post-Doctoral students.

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.

In 2004, the Scholarship Programme was evaluated and a comprehensive assessment of options for supporting ESED was prepared.

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
