The US Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded over $5 million for 42 undergraduate scholarships and 33 graduate fellowships to students pursuing nuclear science and engineering degrees.

The funding – $5000 for each undergraduate scholarship and $50,000 for each three-year graduate fellowships – has been awarded to students at 29 different institutions in the United States.

The graduate fellowships will also include $5000 toward a summer internship at a US national laboratory or other approved facility where students will study a breadth of critical nuclear energy issues, from fuel cycle sustainability to reactor efficiency and design.
