SCC students eligible for scholarships from Nuclear Regulatory Commission grant

Students in a number of programs on Southeast Community College’s Milford Campus will have the opportunity to earn scholarships, thanks to a grant from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

The NRC awarded SCC a $144,147 grant, with $124,000 to be used for student scholarships over the next two years. The goal of the grant, according to the NRC, is to develop a workforce capable of supporting the regulation of nuclear facilities and the safe handling of nuclear materials.

“Our intention is to award up to 42 scholarships of up to $3,000 each over a two-year period to assist students in completing their education in one of SCC’s nuclear-related programs,” said John Pierce, chair of the Energy Generation Operations program. “These are all very high-paying, long-term stable careers that can be very lucrative for our graduates.”

Students in Energy Generation Operations, Electronic Systems Technology, Electrical/Electromechanical, Nondestructive Testing Technology, Manufacturing Engineering Technology and possibly others will benefit from these scholarships.

In order to qualify for a scholarship through this grant, students must be enrolled in full-time credit hours, maintain high academic standing and sign a service agreement to work in a nuclear-related job a minimum of six months for each full year or partial year of support.

To apply for the scholarship, please contact John Pierce at 402-761-8394.
