Ørsted is giving out scholarships for UK and EU students which are starting an energy master’s program at the Durham University this October.
The scholarships are available up to GBP 6,000 and are valid for the MSc Energy and Society and MSc New and Renewable Energy programs at the UK university.
Ørsted emphasized it is already a key strategic partner for Durham University and collaborates with Durham Energy Institute Researchers on a number of research projects and activities.
“The UK is the global leader in offshore wind and, if we are to maintain that position, we must attract the most talented minds to the industry. With the Ørsted scholarships we intend to do just that by providing the opportunity for those bright people who may otherwise been unable to progress to the next stage of their studies,” said Benj Sykes, UK Country Manager at Ørsted.
“Our partnership with Durham University to date is already producing cutting-edge research that is helping to drive innovation and we look forward to this continuing.”
The deadline for submitting applications for the scholarship is 17 August.
