The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is awarding over $82 million in nuclear energy research, facility access, crosscutting technology development, and infrastructure awards in 28 states. In total, 93 projects were selected to receive funding that will help push innovative nuclear technologies toward commercialization and into the market. These awards provide funding for nuclear energy-related research through the Nuclear Energy University Program, Nuclear Science User Facilities, and Nuclear Energy Enabling Technology programs. In addition to financial support, a number of recipients will receive technical and regulatory assistance through the Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) initiative.

Through NEUP, DOE is awarding more than $35 million for 48 university-led nuclear research and development projects, $15 million for 4 Integrated Research Projects, and $5 million for 17 infrastructure support awards.

DOE is also awarding nearly $7 million to support 7 nuclear energy research and development projects through the Nuclear Energy Enabling Technologies (NEET) program. NEET is also awarding 3 grants, totaling over $1 million, to support infrastructure improvements at Department of Energy national laboratories to further reactor and instrumentation research.

Additionally, DOE has selected eight university, two national laboratory, and one industry-led project that will take advantage of NSUF capabilities to investigate important nuclear fuel and material applications. DOE will fund over $9 million in facility access costs and expertise for experimental neutron and ion irradiation testing, post-irradiation examination facilities, synchrotron beamline capabilities, and technical assistance for design and analysis of experiments through the NSUF.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will have a dedicated session at the 2016 ANS Winter Meeting and Nuclear Technology Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, 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. All summaries received will go through an internal review where finalists will be selected and submitted to the ANS transaction website for consideration.

Summaries are due prior to June 10, 2016, at 11:59 pm ET.

Students can submit summaries at​

The U.S. Department of Energy today announced over $5 million to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing nuclear science and engineering degrees.

The Energy Department is awarding 57 scholarships to undergraduate students and 33 fellowships to graduate students in engineering and science programs related to nuclear energy. Each scholarship student will receive $7,500 to help cover the cost of his or her education for the next year. Fellowship winners will receive up to $50,000 annually over the next three years to help pay for their graduate studies and research, plus $5,000 toward a summer internship.
