U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is an independent agency, established by the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, tasked with licensing and regulating the Nation’s civilian use of byproduct, source, and special nuclear material to ensure adequate protection of public health and safety, to promote the common defense and security, and to protect the environment.
The primary objective is to support scholarships for nuclear science, engineering, health physics, and related disciplines to develop a workforce capable of supporting the design, construction,operation, and regulation of nuclear facilities as well as the safe handling of nuclear materials. Related disciplines supported by this funding are intended to benefit the nuclear safety and security sector broadly.
