Scholarships for nuclear studies for African students

Rosatom has announced that applications are now open for scholarships in nuclear studies, for African students to help develop the next generation of African nuclear scientists and engineers. The scholarships fully fund tuition fees and partly cover living expenses. The goal of the scholarships are to support interest in nuclear research and capabilities among young African scientists and engineers, and contribute to solving some of the world’s most critical issues in the nearest future, allowing for the continent to be self-sufficient. Scholarships are available for students interested in studying nuclear energy related fields in Russia, and include tuition fees and free preparatory courses of Russian language (depending on the university programme). Students have access to subsidised accommodation, library funds and practical experience  at Russian nuclear enterprises. Several study options are available at Russian universities specialising in nuclear engineering such as the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI in Central Russia and Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) in Siberia. The deadline for the first round of applications closes on 15 February 2019.
