IAEA Fellowships

The IAEA Fellowship Program provides training and research opportunities in the peaceful uses of nuclear technology for scientists, engineers, and other relevant professionals from developing countries. Program participants are, or soon will be, entrusted with responsibilities important to the development of their home countries.

IAEA Programs at Argonne administers the IAEA Fellowship Program for fellows and scientific visitors who receive awards for training in the United States. Since the fellowship program was transferred to Argonne in 2003, the program has placed over 1,500 individuals from 100+ countries in the U.S. for training.

Get Involved

IAEA application forms for fellowships and scientific visits must be submitted to the Agency through governmental channels. Priority is given to requests associated with projects of direct benefit to the Member States.

IAEA Programs at Argonne is committed to gender equity and promoting the professional representation of women at U.S.-hosted fellowships and scientific visits. Applications from qualified women of IAEA Member States are encouraged.

The success of the Fellowship Program is only possible with the cooperation of the colleges and universities, hospitals, private corporations and government agencies that host IAEA fellows.
