- IAEA Scholarship up tp 20,000 €: IAEA (Internat. Atomic Energy Agency) has been offering again the IAEA Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship (MSCF) for which suitable female candidates can apply.
Since 14th of July, 2023 the IAEA (Internat. Atomic Energy Agency) has been offering again the IAEA Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship (MSCF) for which suitable female candidates can apply. The aim of the programme is to increase the number of women in the field of nuclear engineering. Selected students will receive a scholarship to pursue master's degrees in nuclear-related programmes at accredited universities. There is also the opportunity to complete an internship of up to 12 months arranged by the IAEA. DIU's NDT master´s programme will be definitely considered for the scholarship, which is an excellent opportunity for young women to become part of our NDT programme, work in an exciting field of application and target towards a professional career at international level.
Students are awarded up to €20,000 for tuition costs and up to €20,000 for living costs for the master’s programme for the academic years 2023/24 and 2024/2025. Therefore, take a close look at the site and take the chance applying for it. Further information can be found on the following webpage: Homepage der IAEA für das MSCF-Programm.
The deadline for applications is 30.09.2023.
