Idaho site achieves spent fuel milestone
At Idaho National Laboratory, Department of Energy leaders joined tribal, state, and local officials; contractors; and workers on March 28 to mark a recent milestone with the state of Idaho nearly 25 years in the making. The milestone was the completion of a spent fuel wet-to-dry project more than nine months ahead of a 1995 Idaho Settlement Agreement deadline.
Utilizing the Nuclear Engineering Education for the Disadvantage (NEED) funds, the Diversity and Inclusion in ANS (DIA) Committee administers the NEED Grants for Academic Programs (NGAP). NGAP grants are awarded to educational institutions with nuclear programs for recruitment activities targeted toward women and other underrepresented groups. The recruitment activities must be toward enrollment in a nuclear-related area of interest (disciplines or topics) that is/are of special interest to at least one of the ANS Professional Divisions.
To be eligible, an institution must have an ANS Student Section or be listed in the current edition of the Nuclear Engineering Education Sourcebook.
Diversity and Inclusion in ANS Committee
An applicant may receive one grant per year. The limit for a single grant is $1,500. Recipients must complete the project within 12 months after receiving the grant, and a grant report must be submitted to the ANS DIA Committee within two months after completion of the project.
Grants funds may not be awarded for the same program more than three (3) times.
The following provide guidance on general expectations, timeline, and restrictions on expenditures using NEED funds. The DIA Committee reserves the right to reduce the amount of a grant to an institution if the proposal contains activities that are not aligned with NEED’s mission.
2-5 awarded annually up to $1,500/each
