E.ON and The Crown Estate are offering a bursary of up to £9,000 towards costs of tuition fees and dissertation travel for a student who has been accepted for either of these two University of Sussex MSc programmes:
- Climate Change and Development
- Energy Policy for Sustainability.
This offer is made in conjunction with the Brighton-based charity, Renewable World. Renewable World is an international NGO, working in South Asia, Central America and East Africa to tackle poverty through the provision of affordable renewable energy in remote, off-grid settings.
On top of the financial support, the successful candidate will be offered an (unpaid) internship within the UK-based global programme team at Renewable World. This is an excellent opportunity to gain first-hand experience of the programme work of an international development NGO, and an insight into the running and management of NGO. The dissertation topic is to be agreed with Renewable World. The deadline for applications is the 6th of August 2012. Please see attachment for more information.
Both programmes are still accepting applications for the 2012 entry.
