What is Queen Elizabeth Scholars for Energy Access?
Our goal is threefold: 1) to deliver eye-opening and career-building international experiences in the energy access sector for UW students, 2) to provide social enterprises in the sector with high calibre student interns that contribute significantly to their mission, and 3) to create a community of QE Scholars that become future innovators, advocates and leaders in the energy access sector.
How does the program work?
AE4H arranges 3-6 international internships in emerging or commonwealth countries prior to every school term (Spring, Fall and Winter). Positions are posted through the WaterlooWorks system and open to students across all faculties. If the position is for 4 months, the successfully placed student will receive a $6000 CDN scholarship in addition to any compensation provided by the employer. The amount will be $8000 CDN in the case of an 8-month position.
Am I eligible?
UW co-op students across all faculties are eligible, as are Masters students on summer internship. Undergraduate students must have completed at least two previous co-op work terms. Only Canadian citizens and those with permanent resident status in Canada are eligible to receive the scholarship funding.
