U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Nuclear Education Grant Program; Fiscal Year 2008: The primary purpose of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Nuclear Education Grant Program is to support the educational infrastructure necessary for the nation to safely move forward with its nuclear energy initiatives. The program promotes and strengthens teaching programs in nuclear safety, nuclear security, nuclear environmental protection, and other fields that the Commission determines to be critical to the NRC's regulatory mission at higher education institutions, by enhancing curricula and increasing faculty teaching competencies. NRC anticipates as much as $4.7 million may be available through this announcement. Projects may develop, revise, implement, or improve nuclear education infrastructure, teaching competencies, subject matter expertise, and skills in serving students in significant nuclear programs. Projects should identify innovative instructional approaches or techniques to enhance student learning, including distance educational and experiential learning. Emphasis may be on the development of stand-alone modules or entire courses of study, curricula, individual courses, and materials for teaching. Projects may include acquisition of a limited amount of equipment directly associated with implementing new curricula or programs. Curriculum development projects may create teaching resources such as course material including teaching guides on specific nuclear topics. Such materials may use print or electronic formats, but the preparation of traditional textbooks is ineligible for funding. Projects must have an academic focus within the areas of nuclear safety, nuclear security, nuclear environmental protection, or the other fields the Commission has determined to be critical to the NRC's regulatory mission, which can be found in the full announcement.Examples of activities that cannot be supported include, but are not limited to: research projects, fellowships, scholarships, courses on public policy related to nuclear power utilization, large-scale acquisitions of computer equipment, preparation or publication of textbooks, or activities by institutions that are not U.S. accredited institutions of higher education as defined in section 102 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1002).
