Postgraduate Research Awards (PGRAs) are offered by AINSE Limited (the Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering) for suitably-qualified persons wishing to undertake studies in AINSE's fields of interest for a higher degree at an AINSE-member university.

Applications will be received up to 11:59pm 15th April 2019 (Australian Eastern Standard Time).

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.

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.

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. Responsibility for establishing taxation liability lies with the recipient.

Through its PGRA program, AINSE has now helped train hundreds of students in aspects of nuclear science and associated techniques of analysis.
