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.
This division promotes the development and timely introduction of fusion energy as a sustainable energy source with favorable economic, environmental, and safety attributes. The division cooperates with other organizations on common issues of multidisciplinary fusion science and technology, conducts professional meetings, and disseminates technical information in support of these goals. Members focus on the assessment and resolution of critical developmental issues for practical fusion energy applications.

Hot U market and simmering interest in HALEU: It boils down to demand
For years, pressure has been building for a commercial path to a stable supply of high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU)—deemed essential for the deployment of advanced power reactors—but advanced reactor developers and enrichment companies are still watching and waiting. In contrast, the uranium spot price soared after Sprott Physical Uranium Trust, a Canadian investment fund formed in July, began buying up U3O8 supplies, causing the price to increase over 60 percent, topping $50 per pound for the first time since 2012. Fueled by growing acknowledgment that nuclear power is a necessary part of a clean energy future, uranium is the focus of attention from Wall Street to Capitol Hill.

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.
