GSEP Scholarship in Canada 2021

Global Sustainable Electricity Partnership Scholarship (GSEP Scholarship) program is taking applications from Masters candidates from developing nations to school in Canada in 2021/2022 academic year.

In the wake of the Earth Summit in 1992, the CEOs of the world’s largest power companies came together to form the Global Sustainable Electricity Partnership (GSEP) with the vision to set up an international network of expertise to improve cooperation between the major electricity companies in the world and to act as an ecological and technical advisory group for international institutions and governments, especially in developing countries.

This is a non-profit, CEO-led organization of leading electricity companies driving sustainable energy development worldwide through capacity-building activities and small-scale renewable energy projects.

Since 2001, GSEP has backed the coming generation of electricity specialists and academics with this scholarship award. Their scholars are brilliant candidates from developing nations studying in sustainable energy development, who will be ready to take on the challenges of the future.

Today, the need for globally-oriented practitioners and researchers is growing rapidly. Their one-of-a-kind Global Sustainable Electricity GSEP Scholarship program fosters the next generation of energy, climate, and electricity sector specialists.
