U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Scholarship and Fellowship Program - (NRC Scholarship/Fellowship and Faculty Development Programs) - #77.008
This Scholarship and Fellowship program provides funding for undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, trade school and community college scholarships, and faculty development grants. The program allows students to pursue an education in science, engineering, or another field of study that the Commission determines is in a critical skill area related to its regulatory mission. Scholarship and fellowship recipients need to be enrolled in a trade school or postsecondary accredited educational institution; programs accredited by an accrediting agency or state approval agency; registered apprenticeship programs; a professional degree or graduate program offered by an accredited institution of higher education in the United States. The activity supported by this funding is intended to benefit the nuclear sector broadly. Consequently, NRC requires scholarship and fellowship students to serve 6 months in nuclear-related employment for each full or partial year of academic support. The employment may be with NRC, other Federal agencies, State agencies, Department of Energy laboratories, nuclear-related industry, or academia in the students sponsored fields of study. Recipients of scholarships and fellowships must commit to the service obligation agreement. The program also supports faculty development in the nuclear-related fields of Nuclear Engineering, Health Physics, Radiochemistry and related disciplines as determined by the NRC. The program specifically target probationary, tenure-track faculty in these academic areas during the first 6 years of their career.
