The International Atomic Energy Agency is offering a two-year Marie Sklodowska-Curie (MSCFP) Fellowship Program for young women, which aims to help grow the number of women in the nuclear field, supporting an inclusive workforce of both men and women who contribute to and drive global scientific and technological innovation. 

Named after pioneer physicist and Nobel Prize laureate Marie Sklodowska-Curie, the Programme aims to inspire and encourage young women to pursue a career in nuclear science and technology, nuclear safety and security, or non-proliferation, by providing highly motivated and talented female students scholarships for Master’s programs and an opportunity to pursue IAEA internships.

Selected students receive a scholarship for up to 2 years for Master’s programs in nuclear science and technology, nuclear safety and security, or non-proliferation studies at accredited universities. They are also provided with an opportunity to pursue an internship at the IAEA for up to 12 months.

Fields of Study:

The program will support young women studying in nuclear-related fields relevant to the IAEA’s work to advance the safe, secure, and peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology such as nuclear engineering, nuclear physics and chemistry, nuclear medicine, isotopic techniques, radiation biology, nuclear safety, nuclear security and non-proliferation.

Eligibility Criteria:

The IAEA MSCFP is open to students from IAEA Member States who meet the following entry requirements:

  • Female candidates;
  • Accepted by or enrolled in an accredited university in the Master’s program.
  • Preference will be given to applicants with above-average academic credentials (75% or above or GPA > 3.0 out of 4.0).

MSCFP Award:

The fellows will be awarded up to €10,000 per year for tuition costs and up to €10,000 for living costs based on the cost of living at the university’s location, for a maximum of a two-year period of study.

Selection Criteria:

Applications will be assessed by the IAEA MSCFP Technical Selection Committee against MSCFP selection criteria including the applicant’s entry requirements, educational background and prior achievements, motivation, and impact of the fellowship on the applicant’s career goals and commitment to public service. Consideration will be given to geographic distribution, the field of study distribution, linguistic diversity, and whether the applicant has received previous support from the IAEA.

The selected applicants will receive the MSCFP Offer Letter and will be requested to confirm the acceptance of the fellowship within one week. The Offer Letter will provide information on the award details, including payment modality, the expected commitment, as well as administrative requirements and arrangements.

About the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA):

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) was created in 1957 in response to the deep fears and expectations generated by the discoveries and diverse uses of nuclear technology. The Agency’s genesis was U.S. President Eisenhower’s “Atoms for Peace” address to the General Assembly of the United Nations on 8 December 1953. The Agency shall seek to accelerate and enlarge the contribution of atomic energy to peace, health, and prosperity throughout the world. It shall ensure, so far as it is able, that assistance provided by it or at its request or under its supervision or control is not used in such a way as to further any military purpose.
