Narrie Loftus, a senior in nuclear engineering, hopes to do her part to help with the gender gap in her field. That is one reason she was recently excited to learn she was accepted for the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme sponsored by the International Atomic Energy Agency.
“This is a highly selective international fellowship, and I am thrilled to have been chosen,” says Loftus, of Sonoma, California. “Some young women may be intimidated to enter the nuclear engineering field, but that was never a barrier for me. I find this field fascinating, and this fellowship will help me advance my studies and be a role model for future female students.”
She will receive approximately $21,300 for tuition expenses and the same amount for living expenses. She’s also eligible to participate in an internship facilitated by the IAEA, which she plans to do.
