ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Education, Training & Workforce Development
The Education, Training & Workforce Development Division provides communication among the academic, industrial, and governmental communities through the exchange of views and information on matters related to education, training and workforce development in nuclear and radiological science, engineering, and technology. Industry leaders, education and training professionals, and interested students work together through Society-sponsored meetings and publications, to enrich their professional development, to educate the general public, and to advance nuclear and radiological science and engineering.

Predictions: What lies ahead for nuclear in 2022
As we begin a new year, it is natural not only to look back (see page 24 for top news stories of 2021) but also to look forward. Nuclear News reached out to leaders in the nuclear community to get their predictions on what 2022 has in store, whether broadly or for their specific areas within the community. Although the responses below are wide-ranging and varied, one thing is made clear by all of the respondents: 2022 will see growth and opportunity. The future for nuclear is bright.

The Mark Mills Award is presented to the student author who submits the best original technical paper contributing to the advancement of science and engineering related to the atomic nucleus.
The award consists of an engraved plaque and a monetary award of $500. The award is presented at the ANS Winter Meeting.
The award is for an original piece of work, which should be of publishable quality by a graduate student. The submission for the award should be a paper with an abstract in a form and of suitable length for publication in a reputable engineering or scientific journal. A paper, which has been published or submitted for publication, is eligible if nominated by the faculty advisor of the student with the appropriate forms and data. If the student and his advisor or others jointly author the paper, it may be eligible for the award if the student was primarily responsible for the original contribution and his advisor so certifies with the submission.
To be eligible for the award, the student must have been registered in a graduate degree program in a recognized institution of higher learning for one (1) year prior to the award, and his faculty advisor must make a certification of this fact on the nomination form. Thus, this competition is open to a graduate student completing the work on which his paper is based from a minimum of 4 months prior to the award to a maximum of 16 months prior to the award. A thesis is not acceptable. Multiple nominees by a nominator, nomination of past recipients of the award, and multiple-year nominations of the same paper are prohibited.
This award was established by the Society in 1958 as a memorial award to the late Mark Mills in recognition of his significant contributions to nuclear science and engineering.
The Honors and Awards Committee of the Education and Training and Workforce Development Division (ETWDD) administers this award. That committee establishes the detailed evaluation criteria, solicits the nominations, and determines the recipient. The national Honors and Awards Committee is available for consultation and review of criteria and procedures as appropriate.
