The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to award multiple cooperative agreements to accredited U.S. two- and four-year Colleges and Universities to receive and administer scholarship and fellowship funding—provided through the Integrated University Program (IUP) and as administered by the Department of Energy, Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE)—on behalf of selected students attending these Universities. The selection of students for the program will occur via a separate DOE-NE process.
The IUP works to attract qualified nuclear science and engineering students (NS&E) to nuclear energy professions by providing undergraduate level scholarships and graduate level fellowships. The fellowships and scholarships are focused on two-, four-year, and graduate programs in science and engineering disciplines related to nuclear energy such as Nuclear Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemistry, Health Physics, Nuclear Materials Science, Radiochemistry, Applied Nuclear Physics, Nuclear Policy, Radiation Protection Technology, Nuclear Power Technology, Nuclear Maintenance Technology, and Nuclear Engineering Technology at Universities and Colleges located in the United States (U.S.).
The DOE-NE mission is to encourage development and exploration of advanced nuclear science and technology. DOE-NE promotes nuclear energy as a resource capable of meeting the Nation’s energy, environmental, and national security needs by resolving scientific, technical, and regulatory challenges through research, development, and demonstration.
Applications will be accepted continuously until January 31, 2021.
