The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has awarded SCC a grant which is to be used for scholarships for students concentrating in nuclear-related associate degree programs.
The project goal is to help develop a workforce capable of supporting the design, construction, operation, and regulation of nuclear facilities and the safe handling of nuclear materials.
Awards are up to $3,000 per year per eligible student as long as funding is available.
Degree-seeking students who are accepted into or enrolled in the following Programs of Study are encouraged to submit an application for a scholarship from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Nuclear Energy Scholarship Program (NESP). Incoming students must meet the course-placement score for the program to which they applied.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission funds this scholarship.
The service agreement is required for all students in receipt of federal funds, and the student will agree to maintain satisfactory academic progress and secure employment for six months in a nuclear-related field, which begins upon completion of the degree or certificate program.
A good-faith effort by the student to secure employment in a nuclear-related field can be made with job applications, referrals, etc.
The student will agree to provide current contact information (address, telephone, email), and employment information, subject to the provisions of the Privacy Act, for as long as the student remains under obligated service. This information will be used solely for verifying appropriate nuclear-related employment in compliance with this service obligation.
