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. All applications, except those for incoming freshmen, must be sponsored by a faculty advisor of an ANS Student Section or Alpha Nu Sigma Chapter.
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.
