We are pleased to announce the third year of the Innovations in Fuel Cycle Research Awards. This is a program sponsored by the Department of Energy Office of Fuel Cycle Technologies to recognize students who have published papers in nuclear-fuel-cycle-related disciplines. The web site for the program is http://www.fuelcycleinnovations.org. This is a not a scholarship or fellowship, but a cash award. The deadline for applications in 2013 is March 3.
ANS is a full participant in the Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE) Program, with guaranteed support for two students. ANS-sponsored students must be student members of the Society.
The WISE Program is co-sponsored by several professional engineering societies and the National Science Foundation. The Program is open to students in engineering or technology and policy programs who are in their junior or senior year of undergraduate studies or in graduate school. Approximately 15 outstanding students are selected in a nation-wide competition to spend 10 weeks during the summer in Washington, D.C., led by a faculty member-in-residence.
During their internship they attend a series of seminars to learn how government officials make decisions on complex technological issues and how engineers can contribute to legislative and regulatory public policy decisions. Each intern also completes an independent research project and paper dealing with a technology policy issue. Interns are housed at George Washington University at the expense of the WISE Program, and receive a stipend for the summer.
Travel expenses to and from Washington are also defrayed by the Program. Office space for the ANS interns is provided by the Nuclear Energy Institute.
Intern selection for 2011 has been completed. Applications for the 2012 Program will be available on the WISE Web site in September 2011. Information about WISE interns and projects from previous years is also available on the WISE Web site, and WISE Programs appear in the September/October issue of ANS News.

American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) invites applications for its 2004-2005 Science and Technology Policy Fellowship Programs.
AAAS sponsors these programs to provide the opportunity for accomplished and societally-aware scientists and engineers to learn more about the public policy-making process of the federal government. Fellows serve for one year in the Congress or in executive branch agencies, and are valued for their external perspectives and critical thinking skills, a well as for their technical expertise. Since 1973, nearly 1,600 scientists and engineers have participated in this prestigious, career-enhancing program.
There are 10 different policy fellowship programs and each offers a distinct range of experiences. Candidates may apply to a maximum of three programs. Application deadline is January 10, 2004. For information call 202-326-6700 or visit their Web site at www.fellowships.aaas.org.
The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) is pleased to offer scholarships awards to encourage college students to enter the field of naval engineering and to provide support to naval engineers seeking advanced education in the field. Since the inauguration of its program in 1979, ASNE has awarded 368 scholarships to students interested in careers in naval engineering. Scholarship awards are currently ,500 per school year for undergraduate students and ,500 per school year for graduate students.
Candidates must meet the following requirements:
The next awards will be for the college year starting in the fall of 2005. The recipients will be selected in March/April and announced in May 2005. Applications and supporting documentation must be received by 15 February 2005. For further information and application forms, please contact Dennis Pignotti, ASNE Scholarship Committee, The American Society of Naval Engineers, 1452 Duke Street, Alexandria, VA 22314-3458, phone: (703) 836-6727; or visit the ASNE web site at www.navalengineers.org under scholarships.
Since 1888 the American Society of Naval Engineers has sought to keep its members informed of innovations relating to naval engineering. The Society sponsors numerous meetings, workshops, and symposia, and, through the Naval Engineers Journal, publishes current technical and research findings.
This graduate fellowship program of the National Academies - consisting of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and National Research Council - is designed to engage graduate and postdoctoral students in science and technology policy and to familiarize them with the interactions among science, technology, and government. As a result, students in the fields of science, engineering, medicine, veterinary medicine, business, and law develop essential skills different from those attained in academia, which will help them make the transition from being a graduate student to a professional.
Applications are now being accepted for our 2005 program. This year, the internship program will comprise three, 10-week sessions:
Winter: January 10 through March 18; Summer: June 6 through August 12; Fall: September 12 through November 18
To apply, candidates should submit an application and request that a mentor complete a reference form, both available on the Web at http://national-academies.org/policyfellows.
The deadline for applications is November 1 for the Winter program, March 1 for the Summer program, and June 1 for the Fall program. Candidates may apply to all three programs concurrently.
Additional details about the program including alumni reflections, eligibility requirements, and how to join our mailing list are also available on the Web site.
The National Academy for Nuclear Training (NANT) educational assistance is part of a nationwide effort to support U.S. nuclear engineering education. NANT encourages students to consider careers in the nuclear power industry and provides financial support to students studying disciplines relevant to the industry. Funds for this program are provided by U.S. nuclear utilities. Undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships are awarded to university students who demonstrate sincere interest in nuclear industry careers through outstanding academic achievement and industry involvement.
