Student Bursaries

Generous, competitively allocated, AINSE-supported student bursaries were available for Australian university students to attend the ITER Forum workshop ‘Towards an Australian involvement in ITER’. Bursaries covered the cost of return flights to Sydney, share-accommodation, conference registration and the conference dinner. Preference was given to undergraduate students entering an honours degree and honours year students considering postgraduate study.
