GSEP awards scholarships to 17 students committed to advancing the energy transition

GSEP is proud to announce that 17 students have been awarded with 2023 Education for Sustainable Energy Development (ESED) scholarships. ESED scholarships are awarded to outstanding master’s-level scholars from developing countries who are committed to deepening their expertise in a field related to sustainable energy development.

Now in its 23rd year, the ESED program has supported energy-related master’s studies for a total of 180 students from 43 developing countries around the world. This was one of the most competitive application cycles in the scholarship’s history, with a diverse pool of over 900 strong applicants.

As we work to advance beneficial electrification wordwide, it is crucial that the next generation be well equipped to usher in a sustainable energy future. ESED scholarships give students the resources they need to advance their skills in engineering, energy policy, economics, and related fields so they can support their home countries through the energy transition. 

Our scholars take part in the Young Ambassadors for Global Electrification program, which integrates them into a vibrant global community of young professionals and experts in the energy sector.
