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 funds 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.
