American Nuclear Society scholarship applications for the 2012-2013 academic year are now online! Since ANS was established in 1954, it has promoted the awareness and understanding of nuclear science and technology (NS&T). To further that mission, ANS administers scholarships each year that support the development and education of those who will research and implement future applications of NS&T.
More than 20 scholarships named after pioneers and leaders in NS&T are awarded each year by ANS, along with some general scholarships, to students with outstanding academic credentials. Special scholarships are also available to students based on economic need.
Some scholarships are available for students entering their sophomore year and beyond in college, while others are for incoming freshmen.
“These scholarships are one way that the American Nuclear Society advances nuclear science and technology by supporting future nuclear scientists and engineers as they embark on—or continue—their academic studies,” said Craig Williamson, ANS Scholarships Committee chair. “I strongly encourage students who are interested in pursuing studies in nuclear science and technologies to review the guidelines and apply for the scholarships.”
“The scholarships serve as a wonderful introduction for students to become involved in ANS activities as well as to become life long members,” he said.
The deadline for submitting scholarship applications is February 1, 2012 (April 1 for the Incoming Freshman Scholarship). Scholarship descriptions, guidelines, requirements, and applications are located here.
