At RCREEE, we believe that our region’s young talents are its most valuable asset. The Arab Program for Sustainable Energy Youth™ (APSEY) is a regional sustainable energy internship program which targets young professionals and post graduate students of engineering, economy, and law fields from the Arab region.
The program aims to boost technical and operational capacities of the region’s young talents interested in renewable energy and energy efficiency fields. The program recruits 12 interns every year on two rounds for a hands-on experience in the center’s research and analysis, policy briefs, technical assistance, and other related activities. The opportunity covers full travel expenses in Cairo in addition to a monthly salary.
Since 2014, APSEY Program has been co-financed by the OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID) via three consecutive grants. The grants aim to support young professionals and post-graduate students from Yemen, Sudan, Palestine, Djibouti, Mauritania, Somalia and Syria aspiring to work in the renewable energy and energy efficiency fields.
