Interested students should submit a short Expression of Interest to email@example.com from their university email, outlining their intent to apply for a 2022 AINSE scholarship in 200 words or less.
The annual AINSE WISE School provides an ideal opportunity for first-year undergraduate Women in STEM to network with their peers from across Australia and New Zealand and to hear from special guest speakers about their journeys to successful careers in STEM.
A key component of the WISE school is access to an ongoing mentorship program involving the WISE students, past WISE alumni, and staff members from ANSTO and AINSE.
Please visit our WISE School page for more information, and to apply. Applications close 24th October 2021.

The PGRA is a top-up scholarship that may be held until the expiry of the receipient’s Australian Government Research Training Program scholarship or equivalent primary scholarship. In addition to providing a student with a stipend of A$8,250 per annum (an increase of 10% in 2021), the award provides access to ANSTO’s world-class facilities and expertise. An allowance for travel and accommodation expenses associated with access to ANSTO facilities is also provided.
To date, the AINSE PGRA has supported the training of 491 postgraduate students in nuclear science and related fields, in addition to the 43 new awards announced today.

AINSE are delighted to announce the awarding of 17 new Early Career Researcher Grants (ECRGs) and 6 new Residential Student Scholarships (RSSs) in 2020.
The AINSE ECRG provides up to A$10,000 to scholars in their first five years of a postdoctoral Early Career Research position who are undertaking research in collaboration with ANSTO. The grant can be spent on laboratory consumables, travel and accommodation costs, and relevant conference registration fees associated with the collaborative research project. Carer requirements, including childcare costs, are also eligible for funding under the ECRG.
The AINSE RSS is a top-up scholarship provided for postgraduate students needing to stay at ANSTO facilities for an average of 6 months or more per year. The RSS provides a stipend of A$7,500 per annum in addition to $5,000 per annum in travel support. An additional accommodation allowance is provided for eligible students travelling interstate or overseas to access ANSTO facilities.
AINSE wishes to congratulate our new cohort of ECRG and RSS recipients. We look forward to seeing the fruits of their innovative research projects, undertaken in collaboration with the world-class facilities at ANSTO.
AINSE wish to extend our congratulations to Meltem Bayrak and Sachini Pathirannahalage, our two new Scholarship AINSE ANSTO French Embassy (SAAFE) recipients for 2020.
The SAAFE program supports Early Career Researchers at PhD and postdoctoral levels to travel from Australia to France – and from France to Australia – to initiate sustainable research networks and linkages to support Australia and France in research and innovation.
