U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Funding Opportunity Announcement, Scholarship and Fellowship Education Grant, Fiscal Year 2011: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is an independent agency, established by the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, tasked with licensing and regulating the Nation's civilian use of byproduct, source, and special nuclear material to ensure adequate protection of public health and safety, to promote the common defense and security, and to protect the environment. Funding under this $15 million program includes support for nuclear science, engineering, and related disciplines to develop a workforce capable of supporting the design, construction, operation, and regulation of nuclear facilities and the safe handling of nuclear materials. The total amount of funding available for undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, trade school scholarships, and faculty development grants together in FY2011 totals $15 million. This announcement is for undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships. The announcements for trade school and community college scholarships (HR-FN-0610-NED03) and faculty development grants (HR-FN-0610-NED02) are published separately. As a condition for receiving scholarships or fellowships, recipients must demonstrate satisfactory academic progress in their fields of study, as determined by criteria contained in this announcement and as established by the NRC. The nuclear development supported by this funding is intended to benefit the nuclear sector broadly. Consequently, NRC requires scholarship and fellowship recipients to serve six (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 recipients sponsored fields of study. NRC may waive, in whole or in part, the service obligation, upon determination that compliance by the individual is impractical. There is no guarantee that sufficient funds will be available to initiate or continue grant activities where funding has been recommended by NRC. Future opportunities for submitting applications may be available, depending on future NRC funding authorization. An award funding an individual's scholarship for one academic year does not guarantee that funding will continue for any subsequent years necessary for completion of the individual's degree. That funding does not continue for subsequent years does not alter the terms of the service/employment agreement between the student and the NRC, as described above and discussed in full below.
