Scholarships and Fellowships

Increasing the number of students entering the nuclear science and engineering fields is a key goal for DOE’s Office of Nuclear Energy. Demand for workers in those areas is growing and about half of the nuclear industry’s workforce will be eligible to retire in the next 10 years, according to the Nuclear Energy Institute. If the United States is to stay competitive, it must keep the pipeline of workers filled.
NEUP awarded 76 scholarships and 18 fellowships to U.S. college students during FY 2009.
Undergraduate scholarships are $5,000 for one year. Graduate fellowships are $150,000 over three years.
