New IAEA fellowship to support women in starting careers in nuclear

The IAEA yesterday launched a fellowship programme for up to 100 female graduate students per year to help close a persistent gender gap in the nuclear field – and xx countries have already pledged to support it. Named after twice Nobel Prize winner, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme aims to increase the number of women studying in nuclear science and technology and non-proliferation studies.
