Eligibility

Undergraduate and graduate scholarships are open to ANS student members enrolled in a course of study relating to a degree in nuclear science or nuclear engineering at an accredited university in the United States (or its territories).

ANS members from established international student sections are also eligible to apply for ANS undergraduate scholarships (Sophomore, Junior and Senior only).

Incoming freshmen scholarships are open to graduating high-school seniors who have enrolled full-time in college courses pursuing science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) with an interest in working in nuclear science and technology. Recipients of the Incoming Freshman scholarships are required to join ANS prior to the distribution of funds.

All applications, except those for incoming freshmen, must be sponsored by an academic/faculty advisor (preferably from an ANS Student Section or Alpha Nu Sigma Chapter).
