ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

Hanford prepares to empty waste from single-shell tank
Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS) is preparing to begin waste retrieval from Tank AX-101 at the Department of Energy’s Hanford Site near Richland, Wash. WRPS is the tank operations contractor at Hanford.
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
Call for NGAP proposals sent to NE department chairs and faculty advisors
