ABOUT GGSP?

The Global Green Scholars Program (GGSP) is the flagship international internship program at ReNew Power. The program was launched in 2017 with an aim to attract bright and passionate talent from top universities across the globe, who are interested in renewable energy, sustainability, the energy transition and related topics which concern clean energy space and is looking to build a career in this sector. Aimed at promoting diversity and exchange of ideas, this program is designed for students with a stellar academic and co-curricular record, with an inclination towards action and have a keen interest to familiarize themselves with how a leading renewable energy company works. We envision GGSP as a channel to attract best talent to this important sector by giving them exposure and learning so they can form an idea what this sector is all about.

The intention of the program is to attract the best global young talent to work on specific projects with business and strategic outputs, where we are looking for those with good technical and business acumen, are adaptable and resilient in a way to changing circumstances, especially working in India, far away from home. The idea is to mentor them to do these projects and capitalize on these fresh perspectives, while also forming a relationship with the university they come from.
