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.
Young Members Group
The Young Members Group works to encourage and enable all young professional members to be actively involved in the efforts and endeavors of the Society at all levels (Professional Divisions, ANS Governance, Local Sections, etc.) as they transition from the role of a student to the role of a professional. It sponsors non-technical workshops and meetings that provide professional development and networking opportunities for young professionals, collaborates with other Divisions and Groups in developing technical and non-technical content for topical and national meetings, encourages its members to participate in the activities of the Groups and Divisions that are closely related to their professional interests as well as in their local sections, introduces young members to the rules and governance structure of the Society, and nominates young professionals for awards and leadership opportunities available to members.

The Sodium Reactor Experiment
In February 1957, construction was completed on the Sodium Reactor Experiment (SRE), a sodium-cooled, graphite-moderated reactor with an output of 20 MWt. The design of theSRE had begun three years earlier in 1954, and construction started in April 1955. On April 25, 1957, the reactor reached criticality, and the SRE operated until February 1964.

The Krell Institute, a 501(c)(3) corporation, manages three Ph.D. fellowships for the U.S. Department of Energy that provide payment of full tuition and required fees at any U.S. accredited university, a generous yearly stipend, an annual professional development allowance which can be used for academic needs as well, a research practicum at a national laboratory and more.
The Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship is for students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields that use high-performance computing to solve problems in science, engineering, mathematics, and computer science. The DOE CSGF program is open to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents that are senior undergraduates or students in their first year of doctoral study and is renewable for up to four years.
The Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship supports students pursuing their Ph.D. in areas of interest to stewardship science, such as properties of materials under extreme conditions and hydrodynamics, nuclear science, or high energy density physics. The fellowship is open to U.S. citizens who are senior undergraduates or students in their first or second year of graduate study and is renewable for up to four years.
The Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Laboratory Residency Graduate Fellowship supports U.S. citizens in their second year or later pursuing a Ph.D. in fields of study that address complex science and engineering problems relevant to the stewardship of the nation’s nuclear stockpile. DOE NNSA LRGF fellows will work and study in residence at one or more of four approved DOE NNSA facilities for a minimum of two 12-week periods. The fellowship is renewable for up to four years.
