Through the Integrated University Program, the U.S. Department of Energy is awarding more than $5 million for 58 undergraduate scholarships and 31 graduate fellowships to students pursuing nuclear energy-related disciplines at universities across the country. Through this program, undergraduates will receive a $7,500 scholarship, while fellowship winners will receive up to $50,000 annually over the next three years. The graduate fellowships will also include $5,000 toward a summer internship at a U.S. national laboratory or other approved facility to strengthen the ties between students and the Department’s nuclear energy research programs. The selected students will study a breadth of critical nuclear energy issues, from fuel cycle sustainability to reactor efficiency and design.
Since 2009, the Energy Department has awarded over $38 million to more than 700 students for nuclear energy-related scholarships and fellowships.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will have a dedicated session at the 2017 ANS Winter Meeting and Nuclear Technology Expo in Washington, D.C., this November for the Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP). This session will provide students an opportunity to present a summary of work performed under NEUP-funded research.
We would like to invite students working on an active NEUP project to submit a 1-4 page summary to ANS for review. Summaries are due prior to May 31, 2017, at 11:59 pm ET.
Students can submit summaries here.
Guidance on summary formatting can be found here.

DOE is seeking information, comments, feedback, and recommendations from interested parties for future work scope areas for the major NE-funded research programs in the following R&D areas:
1. Fuel Cycle Research and Development (FC R&D) Program
2. Reactor Concepts Research, Development, and Demonstration (RC RD&D) Program
3. Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation (NEAMS) Program
4. Nuclear Enabling Technologies (NEET) Crosscutting Technology Development (CTD)
DOE is also seeking information, comments, feedback, and recommendations from interested parties to determine what capabilities that support research, training and technology demonstration, are of high interest to the nuclear research community. In addition to receiving feedback on the aforementioned capabilities, DOE seeks input on other high priority nuclear energy-related infrastructure needs, including information on the potential benefit, location, funding model, and feasibility of establishing, maintaining, and operating such facilities.
Responses must be received by Saturday, May 13, 2017, to be considered for FY 2018 workscopes.
Request for Information- Research and Development Work Scope Development (DE-SOL-0008246)
Request for Information- Potential Infrastructure Investments (DE-SOL-0008318)

The Department of Energy has issued an Amendment (0004) for the Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research (CINR) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) DE-FOA-0001515. The purpose of the Amendment is to update the FOA document to include an update to the IRP:NE-1: Grand Challenge Problem for Nuclear Energy Workscope. The Amendment relaxes the requirement to match the number of students and faculty such that in total, the number of students and faculty supported in collaborating countries must be at least equal to those supported in the United States.
Applications are due February 15, 2017.
A copy of the Amended FOA is available here.

From July 16-29, 2017, UC Berkeley will host the second annual Nuclear Innovation Bootcamp. Graduate and Undergraduate students in nuclear engineering, energy economics, energy policy, and other subjects will be trained for two weeks in skills essential to innovation while executing team design projects. The program will consist of a series of modules from Silicon Valley and nuclear experts; professional participants will learn side by side with the students and contribute their expertise to the student design projects. These projects will culminate in product pitches, which will be open to the public and streamed online.
