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.
The division was organized to promote the advancement of knowledge of the use of particle accelerator technologies for nuclear and other applications. It focuses on production of neutrons and other particles, utilization of these particles for scientific or industrial purposes, such as the production or destruction of radionuclides significant to energy, medicine, defense or other endeavors, as well as imaging and diagnostics.

Recap: The 2023 ANS Winter Meeting
The American Nuclear Society’s 2023 Winter Meeting and Expo opened on November 12, and its packed opening plenary the next day generated a lot of buzz. Featured speakers included West Virginia senators Shelley Moore Capito and Joe Manchin as well as Nuclear Regulatory Commission chair Christopher Hanson. They each addressed top issues facing the nuclear enterprise to a full house of more than 1,000 members of the wider nuclear community.
The purpose of the Nontraditional Student Scholarship is to expand and enrich the nuclear field by recognizing and supporting outstanding students from various cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds, with diverse talents, interests, and life experiences. The scholarship is open to students pursuing a degree in nuclear science, nuclear engineering, or a nuclear-related field, who are headed to college for the first time or are returning to complete an interrupted education.
Nontraditional is categorized as anyone who satisfies at least one of the following criteria*:
*Defined by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES)
Examples of nuclear fields are, but not limited to chemical, electrical, or mechanical engineering; physics, chemistry, power economics.
Examples of interrupted education are, but not limited to: switching careers, taking care of children or other dependents, hospitalization/sickness, single parents, individuals entering the workforce for the first time, or any other life circumstances.
