Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering (AINSE) Postgraduate Awards
AINSE offers awards for postgraduate students whose research projects are associated with nuclear science, or its applications, and require access to the unique national facilities at the Australian Nuclear Science & Technology Organisation (ANSTO).
Postgraduate Research Awards are offered by AINSE for suitably qualified persons wishing to undertake studies in AINSE's field of interest for a higher degree. Applications are particularly encouraged in fields which are related to the research activities at ANSTO.
The award provides a stipend of A$7,500 per annum, in addition to a generous travel and accommodation allowance, to enable students to work at ANSTO facilities.
AINSE PGRAs are in the form of “supplements” and are offered to scholars who are, or will be, in receipt of an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) / Research Training Program (RTP) or equivalent award (as certified by the Research Office of the university at which the applicant is enrolled), and for as long as that Award is current subject to satisfactory progress.
Candidates for an AINSE Postgraduate Research supplement must be nominated by the Australian or New Zealand University where PhD enrolment is held (or proposed for tenure commencing before 30th June of the year of application). The University must be a member of AINSE.
