Applications open for the IAEA Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme (MSCFP)

The application process has opened again for students interested in applying for a scholarship from the IAEA Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme (MSCFP).

The IAEA Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme (MSCFP) aims to help increase the number of women in the nuclear field, supporting an inclusive workforce of both men and women who contribute to and drive global scientific and technological innovation. The Programme seeks to inspire and encourage young women to pursue a career in the nuclear field, by providing highly motivated female students with scholarships for Master’s programmes and an opportunity to pursue an internship facilitated by the IAEA.

Scholarships are awarded annually, with up to 100 female students selected per year depending on the availability of funds. Consideration is given to geographic, field of study and linguistic diversity. The selected students are awarded up to €20,000 for tuition costs and up to €20,000 for living costs for the duration of their Master’s programme.

Deadline for applications: 30 September 2021 for the academic years 2021/2022 and 2022/2023.
