The IAEA Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme (MSCFP) helps to encourage young women to pursue careers in the nuclear field. Over the two years since its launch, the MSCFP has already supported 210 female students representing 93 Member States studying in 53 countries around the globe.

The application period for the MSCFP 2022 cycle opened on 15 July 2022 and will close on 30 September 2022. Female students can apply for scholarships for academic years 2022/2023 and 2023/2024.

Selected students will receive a scholarship for Master’s programmes in nuclear related studies at accredited universities. They will also be provided with an opportunity to pursue an internship facilitated by the IAEA for up to 12 months.

MSCFP is a continuous initiative with the aim to ensure that more women have an opportunity to pursue advanced education in nuclear related fields, thus this year the programme will provide scholarships to 150 female students, for Master’s programmes in nuclear related fields, including increased internship opportunities facilitated by IAEA. Consideration is given to geographic distribution, the field of study distribution, linguistic diversity and whether the applicant has received previous support from the IAEA.
