The Globeleq Scholarshipa Fund (GSF) was launched in 2014. It is managed by Globeleq South Africa Management Services (GSAMS) and is funded by GSAMS’ independent power producers (IPPs) and one of its shareholders, the Globeleq Educational Trust (GET). To date, approximately R10.3 million has been awarded in bursaries.
THE GSF AIMS TO:
1. Help meet the demand in the renewable energy (RE) industry for technical skills
2. Create a skills pipeline for our company and the industry
