7th AINSE WISE School: Monday 4th - Friday 8th December 2023

AINSE Ltd., with support from ANSTO, are hosting our seventh educational school for first-year undergraduate women in STEM, with an emphasis on their career opportunities within nuclear science and engineering.

AINSE offers scholarships to each of its member universities to enable nominated first-year female-identifying students to attend the annual WISE School in December 2023.

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 active participation in 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, please contact your University Councillor or AINSE administration.
