In the region tracked by Balkan Green Energy News, excellent students from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, North Macedonia, Turkey and Kosovo* are eligible for the scholarship program.

There is one week left for exceptional students from developing countries to apply for the 2020-2021 Education for Sustainable Energy Development (ESED) program. Global Sustainable Electricity Partnership or GSEP said it has set the scholarship at a maximum of USD 21,000 per person.

Eligible scholars are those undertaking full-time master’s studies in the fields of zero carbon energy, smart grids, electric transportation, energy storage, advanced electricity technologies, public policy or other relevant fields. The application deadline is March 6.

“Our one-of-a-kind scholarship program fosters the next generation of energy, climate, and electricity sector specialists who will be prepared to tackle the challenges of the future,” said the global alliance of electricity companies. Headquartered in Montreal, GSEP promotes electrification and sustainable energy.

The candidates will have at least one full school year and up to three semesters left, starting in the autumn. They must be citizens of a developing economy on the list of official development aid recipients identified by the Development Co-operation Directorate of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development – OECD.

In the region that Balkan Green Energy News is following, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, North Macedonia and Turkey are in its upper middle category. Kosovo* is the only entity here with lower middle income. The country or territory that exceeds the high income threshold for three consecutive years is erased from the list.

Members of the Group of Eight and the European Union are ineligible for official development assistance as are states with a scheduled date of joining the 27-member bloc. The criterium is based on gross national income (GNI) per capita as published by the World Bank.

Last year there were 913 applications. Since 2002, there were 215 participants.

* This designation is without prejudice to positions on status and is in line with UNSCR 1244/99 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo declaration of independence.
