Rosatom Rolls Out Scholarships for Kenyan Nuclear Students

By Soko Directory Team / January 18, 2019




Russian nuclear energy corporation, Rosatom, has announced that applications are now open for scholarships in nuclear for Kenyan and other African students to help develop the next generation of African nuclear scientists and engineers. The scholarships fully fund tuition fees and partly – living expenses.

“The goal of the scholarship is 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”, says Rosatom Central and Southern Africa’s CEO Dmitry Shornikov.

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 (depends on university program). Students have access to subsidized accommodation, library funds and practical experience at Russian nuclear enterprises.

Several study options are available at Russian universities specializing in nuclear engineerings such as the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI in Central Russia and Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) in Siberia.

MEPhI is the leading Russian university in the field with more than 75 years’ expertise in nuclear engineering. It is the key partner of Rosatom in the field of educating young high-qualified nuclear specialists and today hosts more than 1 500 foreign students from 57 countries, including over 50 students from sub-Saharan Africa, including South Africa.

Bachelor’s Degree involves programmes in Nuclear Power Engineering and Thermal Physics; Nuclear Reactors and Materials; Nuclear Power Plants: Design, Operation, and Engineering. Master’s Degree programmes in Nuclear Physics and Engineering; Nuclear Power Engineering and Thermo Physics are also available as well as Postgraduate Degree in Nuclear Power Engineering and Technologies.

TPU is the only Russian university equipped with a nuclear research reactor available for foreign students. The IRT-T research reactor has been commissioned in July 1967 and is now used for peaceful atom technologies such as nuclear medicine, transmutation neutron alloying, isotope engineering, thorium power engineering. In over 60 years, more than 12 000 specialists graduated from TPU, including 8 000 trained in nuclear engineering and research.

TPU offers Bachelor’s Degrees in Nuclear Physics and Technology; a Master’s Degree in Nuclear Power Installations Operation, Nuclear Medicine; and a Postgraduate Degree in Nuclear, Thermal, and Renewable Energy and Related Technologies.

Rosatom cooperates with these universities to create opportunities for training Rosatom partner-countries’ academicians.
