WindAc Africa Student Sponsorship

WindAc Africa is a premier academic exchange platform in South Africa, it offers a special programme for high potential young people from South African universities.

Whilst the primary purpose of this programme is to bring superior wind research knowledge to our students, the intention is also to reward the students for their excellent work, motivate and inspire them to pursue their academic path, and offer them the opportunity to network with their peers: the future leading experts in wind energy in Southern Africa.

We were able to sponsor 20 students at the WindAc Africa conference 2021 and are hoping to welcome 40 sponsored students at this year’s event (11, 12 and 13 October 2022 at the CTICC!).

The student sponsorship will cover expenses such as the WindAc Africa conference fee, travel and accommodation as well as a networking cocktail event.
