Synopsis of offering:

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is an independent agency, established by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, 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.

There are four award mechanisms:

 

Scholarship This is a two (2) year program. Scholarship funds may be requested for up to $200,000.00 total costs (direct costs and facilities and administrative costs) for the project period. A scholarship student may not receive more than $10,000.00 per year or exceed $20,000.00 over a 2-year period.

 

Fellowship This is a four (4) year program. Fellowship funds may be requested for up to $400,000.00 total costs (direct costs and facilities and administrative costs) for the project period. A post graduate student may not receive funding in excess of $50,000.00 per year or exceed $200,000.00 over a 4-year period.

 

Faculty Development This is a three (3) year program. Faculty Development funds may be requested for up to $450,000.00 total costs (direct costs and facilities and administrative costs) for the project period, provided that an additional $50,000.00 per year is fully matched by the recipient. Other direct costs includes but are not limited to course development, equipment, stipends, participation in professional society meetings, and preparation of papers, travel, and associated expenses. The base award is up to $300,000.00. However, the NRC may increase, up to $450,000.00, to the extent that a portion of the award is matched dollar for dollar by the recipient. For example, an award in the amount of $400,000.00 would require a match of $100,000.00 from the recipient.
