The American Nuclear Society Scholarship Program

The American Nuclear Society wants to reward its members for their academic, services and leadership excellence. That’s why they are offering scholarships to qualified student members of ANS Student Sections who have demonstrated a high commitment to the standards. High school, undergraduate and graduate students alike are eligible to apply. Total number and amount of scholarships varies each year and winning candidates will get up to $4000 award amount.

The American Nuclear Society (ANS) is a not-for-profit, international, scientific and educational organization. The core purpose of ANS is to promote the awareness and understanding with regard to the application of nuclear science and technology.
