AINSE Ltd. has received funding from the Office of the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer within the NSW Department of Industry, with in-kind support from ANSTO, to hold a 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 held at ANSTO’s Sydney Campus in December.

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 face-to-face 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 tours of the research facilities at ANSTO’s Sydney campus is also included in the program, alongside a networking dinner and a range of panel discussions.

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