The value of the fellowship is $6000, with contributions from the Division of Engineering Science, Institute of Sustainable Energy, and your supervisor.

ESROP – Energy is open to all Engineering Science students who are completing their First year of study. Canadian citizens, permanent residents, or visa students may apply. Visa students are required to ensure that they have the necessary permission and documentation from immigration authorities.
