Brief Description

IAEA Launches Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme to Push for More Women in Nuclear The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) today launched a new fellowship programme for up to 100 female graduate students per year to help close a persistent gender gap in the nuclear field. Named after twice Nobel Prize winner, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme aims to increase the number of women working in nuclear science and technology. Eligibility The IAEA will provide scholarships for up to 2 years for women pursuing a graduate degree in nuclear science and technology or non-proliferation studies. Fellows will also be offered internships at the IAEA. The exact number of scholarships to be awarded per year will depend on the availability of funds. Many IAEA Member States have already indicated strong support for the fellowship programme and readiness to support it financially. The name of the Programme honours one of the most famous female scientists. Marie Skłodowska-Curie’s pioneering work on radioactivity in the late 1800s enabled the world to harness the power of the atom, producing countless benefits for humankind.
