Green Power and AUCC Students for Development Internships
Green Power collaborates with researchers at McGill on a socio-economic impact evaluation of its projects. This partnership provides substantial pro bono capacity building and community outreach support (e.g. holding informational assembly meetings for the communities, using media (video) to inform community members, providing computer training, etc.) and is in the process of carrying out a socio-economic impact evaluation of electricity in the REAM partner communities using the randomized controlled trial method. The Green Power internship opportunities are offered through the 2012-2013 multi-year AUCC-Students for Development program at McGill, a partnership between Green Power, the Institute for the Study of International Development, and the Internship Offices Network (ION). The program grants between $6,500 (for a three-month internship) and up to $9,500 (for a six-month internship) to up to five McGill students who gain academic credit through an internship with Green Power.
