The Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering (AINSE) Postgraduate Research Award (PGRA) consists of a A$7,500 per annum stipend given to students studying their PhD at an AINSE Member University. The Award also provides travel and accommodation support for students to present at conferences, undertake field work or travel to ANSTO facilities.

An AINSE PGRA will be held at the nominating university, however the student will be required to spend a significant period, normally not less than four weeks per year, attached to ANSTO at Lucas Heights, or other AINSE supported facilities, for the purpose of receiving training and using these facilities in connection with the approved research project.


To be eligible, you must meet the entry requirements for a higher degree by research.

Eligible students will be enrolled in an postgraduate research degree at an AINSE Member University and receiving an APA/RTP scholarship or equivalent.

The research project must require the use of ANSTO’s facilities and expertise.

How to apply

To apply for the PGRA Scholarship, contact your AINSE Councillor and establish a connection with an appropriate ANSTO co-supervisor on the instrument you will be using for your research. You must complete the application form using our online application portal prior to the application deadline.

Selection criteria

Applicants must be persons who have completed, or who expect to complete within six months of nomination, the requirements for the degree of BE(Hons) or BSc(Hons) or equivalent, at a recognised university, and who are enrolled, or expect to enrol within six months, as a candidate for a higher research degree at a member university of AINSE.
