The Nuclear Regulatory Commission Scholarship was established in 2014 by a grant from the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). The NRC has once again awarded scholarship funding to Thomas Edison State University to provide support to qualified School of Applied Science and Technology students enrolled in one of the following nuclear-related bachelor of science degree programs:
Nuclear Energy Engineering Technology (ABET-accredited); Nuclear Engineering Technology with a concentration in Radiation Protection; Nuclear Engineering Technology; Energy Systems Technology; Electronics Systems Engineering Technology (ABET-accredited); Electronics Engineering Technology; Radiation Protection; Radiation Protection/Health Physics; Cybersecurity and Information Technology. The scholarship funding will also support students enrolled in the School's master of science degree programs in Nuclear Energy Technology Management, Information Technology and Technical Studies.
The University awards scholarships averaging $2,500 (each) to qualified students based on need and academic performance. The maximum scholarship award is $10,000.
Currently, all available funds have been committed to current students. We are exploring options with the NRC to determine if additional funding may be available now or in the future. However, at this time, the scholarship committee is not awarding new NRC scholarships due to the lack of funding.
The Scholarship Committee is still accepting applications to be added to a wait list for consideration should additional funding become available.
Please note that students utilizing Military Tuition Assistance, Veterans educational benefits, or federal/state financial aid may still qualify for this scholarship
The online application may be submitted at any time during the application period and will be held on a first come, first serve basis. Should funding become available students receiving a scholarship must sign the NRC Service Agreement, the details of which are listed below.
For more information on determining whether you are eligible for this scholarship, contact Dr. Richard Coe assistant dean in the School of Applied Science and Technology at Thomas Edison State University.
If you are awarded and accept a NRC Scholarship, you are obligated to fulfill the requirements of the NRC Service Agreement. The University will monitor these as NRC penalties may be imposed due to non-compliance.
