IAEA Technical Cooperation Funding 

Steps for Applying for IAEA Course Funding 

Financial support for in-person and virtual WNU courses is provided by the IAEA Department of Technical Cooperation through the IAEA Technical Cooperation Fund. Candidates must be from an IAEA member state and the IAEA must receive an official endorsement from the candidate's home country. 

How to Apply

Apply to the WNU Programme

  1. Go to

  2. Select programme of interest and click ‘Register.’ An external registration form will open in a new window. Please read the registration requirements carefully to ensure you have prepared all the relevant information and documents before starting your application. For a list of the required information, click here

  3. Once you have read the requirements, select ‘New Registration.’

  4. Next, select ‘Candidate seeking IAEA funding.’

  5. Complete the rest of the application form and submit it. Make sure to print a copy of your registration application for your records. Applicants will receive an email confirmation once they have successfully submitted their completed applications. 


Applicants will hear back from WNU about the status of their application (pre-selection or rejection) roughly three weeks after the application deadline closes. 

The WNU pre-selected applications then get sent to the IAEA for internal review. After the second review, the applicants who have been pre-selected by both the WNU and IAEA will be invited to apply for funding through the InTouch+ platform and contact their National Liaison Officer to secure the nomination.


Applicants who have been pre-selection may move on to the following steps:

Applying through the InTouch+ Portal 

  1. Go to the IAEA's InTouch+ portal and sign in using your IAEA Nucleus username and password. If you don't have an IAEA Nucleus account, you must create a new profile.

  2. Use the project and event numbers to complete the application form and submit it directly to your National Liaison Officer (NLO).

For more information on submitting your application, endorsement and approval, etc., visit the InTouch+ Help Page or contact

From there:

The NLO will review and indicate whether the national government endorses the candidate's application to the IAEA. After receiving all of the endorsed applications from the NLOs, the IAEA will make a final selection. Successful recipients of the funding will be notified of the final status of their applications after the IAEA makes a final decision, and welcomed to the programme.
