Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Science Undergraduate Scholarship Application
The NERS Scholarship program will award top students from: Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Geology, Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, or a related discipline for participation in nuclear-related coursework and/or research (e.g., see
). The cohort of scholars can participate in professional networking opportunities through regional American Nuclear Society meetings and field trips to regional nuclear fuel cycle facilities. Scholarships in the amount of $2,500 will be awarded. Students can apply once per semester.
Scholarship applications are accepted at anytime.
• Enroll and/or remain matriculated in the nuclear related coursework and/or research. (NOTE: Students progressing through the NERS minor are eligible for the scholarship even if not enrolled in a nuclear-specific course during the semester of application submission; however, failure to complete the NERS minor would break the terms of the NRC agreement.)
• Maintain satisfactory academic progress with at least a 3.0 GPA both overall and within the major science/engineering discipline
• Maintain a course load of at least 12 credit hours per semester as a full-time student in good standing (for summer scholarships, students must be full-time the previous Spring and following Fall semesters OR be enrolled in a nuclear-related course for the summer semester)
• Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
All scholars are required to sign the NRC service agreement indicating, among other things, that the scholar is required to work in the nuclear-related industry for 6 months for each year or partial year that they receive funding from the scholarship. The service agreement can be previewed here:
