Previous winners
Previous winners have used the uranium scholarship to attend international schools and conferences. Read about the experience of Dr Chris Griffith:  
“The United Uranium scholarship enabled me to attend one of the first World Nuclear University meetings in Sweden in mid-2006. This was a fantastic opportunity which increased my knowledge across all aspects of the fuel cycle and directly benefited and influenced my research at that time.

This opportunity also enabled me to establish contacts with peers from countries across the globe, and backgrounds ranging from research to regulatory authorities to business analysis and development .

These contacts have been an invaluable source of information and counsel to me ever since, even after moving from nuclear waste clean-up research to applied contract research in the Minerals industry.”


Scholarship ANSTO French Embassy (SAFE) Program
