U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Nuclear Education Program Scholarship and Fellowship Announcement of Opportunity, Fiscal Year 2008: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) was created as an independent agency by Congress in 1974 to enable the nation to safely use radioactive materials for beneficial civilian purposes while ensuring that people and the environment are protected. The NRC regulates commercial nuclear power plants and other uses of nuclear materials, such as in nuclear medicine, through licensing, inspection and enforcement of its requirements. Funding under this program includes support for education in nuclear science and engineering 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 FY08 totals $15 million. 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 education supported by this funding is intended to benefit the nuclear sector broadly. Consequently, NRC requires scholarship and fellowship recipients 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 recipients sponsored fields of study. A waiver of this requirement may be granted in appropriate circumstances. This announcement is just for undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships. The announcements for trade school scholarships and faculty development grants are published separately. Publishing these announcements does not obligate NRC to fund any specific scholarship, fellowship, trade school scholarship, or faculty development program, or to obligate all or any part of available funds. There is no guarantee that sufficient funds will be available to initiate or continue grant activities where funding has been recommended by NRC. The exact amount of funds that NRC may recommend to be granted is determined in pre-award negotiations between the applicant and NRC representatives. Future opportunities for submitting proposals may be available, depending on future NRC funding authorization. NRC only awards grants directly to accredited U.S. institutions of higher education and does not award individual scholarships or fellowships. Individual students cannot apply directly to NRC for scholarships or fellowships.
