Scholarships for Nuclear Engineering Majors

Nuclear engineers aren’t only concerned with nuclear energy as an alternative to fossil fuels--they are also involved in researching and implementing innovative uses for radioactive materials in the fields of medicine, archaeology, agriculture and more. If your dream is to discover a use for uranium that will change the future, you’ll need to study nuclear engineering first. Earning a degree in any field can be a costly endeavor, but there are many scholarships available which can help to reduce that cost. Scholarships for nuclear engineering majors are funded by private organizations such as the American Nuclear Society, the Nuclear Energy Institute and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, as well as government organizations such as the Department of Energy and the National Nuclear Security Administration. Nuclear engineering students applying for a scholarship may need to provide official transcripts, write an essay, meet minimum grade point average requirements or submit letters of recommendation. If you’d like to find out more about scholarships for nuclear engineering majors that you may be eligible for, continue reading below.
