The purpose of the AINSE Trust, established in 2008, is to provide scholarships and fellowships for Australian students and researchers who are participating in AINSE programs.

The Trust is a Deductible Gift Recipient Body. Donations, gifts and bequests larger than $2 are tax deductible.Smaller donations will be amalgamated to support post-graduate top-up scholarships (PGRAs), while larger ones which are sufficient to support a scholarship on their own, may support a named PGRA. A generous contribution from the family of the late Dr John Ferris, a long-standing ANSTO environmental scientist, to support a top-up scholarship in the area of environmental science marks the first major donation to the Trust Fund. It will support the John Ferris Memorial PGRA.

Scholarships and research fellowships awarded from the Trust will be subject to the well established AINSE peer review process.

You can help by providing a donation to the AINSE Trust.
