Research Students

For Postgraduate Students

AINSE Ltd offers awards for postgraduate students whose research projects are associated with nuclear science, or its applications, and require access to the unique national facilities at ANSTO’s Lucas Heights (NSW) or Clayton (Victoria) campuses.

These top-up scholarship awards support postgraduate students at AINSE member universities by providing a stipend, an award for ANSTO facility costs, and an award for travel and accommodation. The proposed research would involve a broad range of ANSTO facilities including those in the Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering, the Centre for Accelerator Science, the Australian Synchrotron and the National Deuteration Facility.


International Conference Travel Scholarships

Applications are invited from students and postdoctoral fellows from AINSE-member universities who wish to present their AINSE-supported research at an international meeting conducted outside Australia.



If students wish to access facilities at ANSTO and they do not have a Postgraduate Award, they can be included in an application for an award by their supervisor.
