Priyanka Pandit of the PRA Group is one of the recipients of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inaugural Marie Sklodowska‑Curie Fellowship Programme. Priyanka is one of the two awardees from the Department of Nuclear Engineering at NCSU. Over 550 candidates from more than 90 countries submitted applications for this fellowship that aims to increase the participation of women in nuclear science by providing scholarships in nuclear-related subjects to 100 graduate students per year.
This fellowship is allowing Priyanka to further her research without significant financial constraints. However, more important to her is the happiness it gives her to know that the IAEA recognizes the importance of her work.
