We’re here to support your academic pursuits as well – apply for one of our need or academic merit scholarships or take advantage of full electronic access to all ANS publications, including our three highly-respected scientific journals. ANS also has an online library of on-demand webinars covering a variety of topics that you can use to dive deeper into your area of study or learn about something entirely new.
Change the world.
ANS members are rising to meet the unique challenges of our time. We ceaselessly advocate and educate to expand the clean, safe, and reliable energy source we know nuclear to be. In recent years, ANS has introduced nuclear science and energy curriculum into K-12 classrooms throughout the country, reaching 1.6 million students and counting. We’ve also created the ANS Rapid Response Taskforce to provide accurate and scientifically grounded information to the media. Finally, ANS works on behalf of its members to advocate for policies to advance nuclear science and technology at the national and state levels.
Join ANS and help us shape the future of nuclear today.
