U.S. Department of Energy Awards Over $6 Million in Infrastructure Support at 15 U.S. Universities

June 21, 2023

​DOE today announced more than $6.3 million in funding for 18 nuclear energy infrastructure projects at 15 U.S. universities.

The funding builds up scientific infrastructure and upgrades research reactors at universities to expand the nation's scientific capabilities and train the next generation of nuclear energy scientists and engineers. 

These awards follow last week's announcement of more than $56 million to support nuclear technology development, early career faculty research activities, and student research at U.S. universities and national laboratories. 

Since 2009, DOE has awarded over $84 million for university nuclear energy infrastructure projects and upgrades. DOE's Infrastructure Program is managed by the Nuclear Energy University Program with support from the Nuclear Science User Facilities (NSUF).
