Scholarship and Fellowship Education Grant, Fiscal Year 2015


Friday, April 17, 2015

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.

This program provides funding to support 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. This announcement is for scholarships and fellowships.

As a condition for 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. 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. Scholarship and Fellowship recipients who fail to satisfy the service agreement requirements of the program must reimburse the United States Government for the entire amount of the assistance provided them under the scholarship plus interest at a rate determined by the NRC. Recipients must continue to comply with eligibility requirements and institutions must continue to comply with public policy requirements and maintain adequate management systems throughout the period of support.

You may submit only one application for the Scholarship Program and one application for the Fellowship Program. If you are requesting both scholarships and fellowships they should be requested in separate applications. One application of each type of award per institution is allowed.
