To promote the energy transition in Central and Eastern Europe, Enery Development is offering two scholarships to female candidates for master’s studies in renewable energy systems at the TU Wien Academy for Continuing Education in Austria. Applications can be submitted by the end of June.

To support female potential and careers in the sector, Enery Development is offering two partial scholarships to female master’s degree students of renewable energy systems at the Vienna-based TU Wien Academy for Continuing Education.

Candidates must have the citizenship of a Central and Eastern European country including the Western Balkans or of Austria. The tuition is EUR 21,500. Enery, an international renewables infrastructure investor, specified the scholarship for one selected candidate would cover 50%, and 40% of the other one.

Part-time program aims to train experts in renewables

“The renewable energy systems program of the TU Wien Academy of Continuing Education is proud to announce a scholarship for a lady coming from Central and Eastern Europe. Funding is secured by our partner Enery, the leading green energy company with a sustainable long-term vision to deliver clean electricity at affordable prices to create a more sustainable energy landscape,” Senior Program Manager Zsofi Postyn told Balkan Green Energy News.

The program is aimed at training experts in planning and evaluating international projects in the field of alternative energy systems such as solar, wind and geothermal facilities. The part-time program provides in-depth knowledge and expertise on legal, technical and economical aspects of sustainable energy production and includes regular field trips and excursions, according to the announcement.

Candidates must have at least two years of professional experience

The studying language is English. The program is held in Vienna and Bruck an der Leitha and lasts four semesters. Candidates have until June 18 to apply for the master’s studies and until June 30 to submit a request for a scholarship. The program is scheduled to begin on November 9.
