4th AINSE WISE School: Tuesday 1st - Thursday 3rd December 2020

Read more about the 2020 WISE School here.

AINSE Ltd., with support from ANSTO and the Office of the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer, are hosting our fourth educational school for first-year female students, with an emphasis on Women in STEM and their career opportunities within nuclear science and engineering.

AINSE offers scholarships to each of its member universities to enable a nominated first-year female student to attend the annual WISE School, held as an entirely-online event in December 2020.

The AINSE WISE School provides an ideal opportunity for students 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 an ongoing mentorship program involving the WISE students, past WISE alumni, and staff members from ANSTO and AINSE. Conversations that begin in one-on-one meetings over the course of the WISE School will continue online and through a series of scheduled videoconferences that run throughout the following year.

A virtual tour of the research facilities at ANSTO’s Sydney and Melbourne campuses is also included in the program, alongside an online networking event and a range of panel discussions.

For more information, and to apply, please contact your University Councillor or AINSE administration.
