The EU-ECOWAS Scholarship programme offers master’s degrees in the sustainable energy sector at specialized universities in West Africa (Cape Verde, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Togo) to eligible students from ECOWAS member countries involved in the energy sector.
The program aims to improve access to high-quality training in the sustainable energy sector in West Africa by enabling university graduates with a focus on young professionals (English, French, and Portuguese speakers) in ECOWAS member states to acquire the profile required to meet the region’s growing demand for specialists at the highest level in the field of sustainable energy, as well as to promote good governance of the sector.
The application deadline is September 23, 2022, at 18.00 WAT.
African countries are eligible.
Award Value: There are two types of scholarships available on the program:
Scholarships for Travel:
