Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Program
– together for more women in Nuclear
The IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme (MSCFP), was launched in 2020 by the IAEA, in an effort to increase the number of women in the nuclear field, and to support an inclusive workforce of men and women who contribute to and drive global scientific and technological innovation. This is important to meet the demand for a nuclear workforce of the 21st century, and contribute to gender equality in national programs and at the IAEA. The MSCFP encourages young women to pursue a career in the nuclear field and provide an environment for them to thrive in and progress, by providing highly motivated female students with scholarships for Master’s programs and an opportunity to pursue an internship facilitated by the IAEA. Scholarships are awarded annually to 100+ female students, subject to availability of funds. In the selection of students, consideration is given to geographic and field of study diversity, in addition to eligibility requirements and other criteria. Learn more.
How to apply?
Those who meet the eligibility criteria are invited to apply using the IAEA MSCFP online application form. The online application portal will open on Friday, 15 July 2022 and will close on Friday, 30 September 2022.
