Limited Submission Announcement

The US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Nuclear Energy (NE) Fellowship and Scholarship Awards comprise 5-year cooperative agreements pre-qualify selected institutions to provide NE fellowships and scholarships to selected students. These fellowships and scholarships will be awarded through a separate mechanism. Fellowship and scholarship funding will be distributed through this cooperative agreement to the Universities where selected students will be attending. The fellowships and scholarships are specifically focused on nuclear science and engineering disciplines.

The Office of Nuclear Energy promotes nuclear power as a resource capable of meeting the nation's energy, environmental and national security needs by resolving technical and regulatory barriers through research, development and demonstration. The NE University Program assists in addressing nuclear energy technical R&D challenges, maintain the nation's leading position in nuclear energy R&D, advance the state of US nuclear technology, and improve the nation's nuclear science and engineering (NS&E) infrastructure so the industry will be ready for future expansion.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, April 17, 2009. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should include 1) a brief history of the academic program, 2) a summary of the current program, and 3) a description of future plans for the program.


The number of individual fellowships/scholarships awarded to each University will be determined by the number of selected students. Accordingly, although each cooperative agreement awarded will run for 5 years, the amount of funding awarded through each University will vary from year to year depending on the actual number of individual scholarships awarded at that University. Approximately $1-3 million is expected to be available in FY 2009 for fellowships/scholarships. The size of individual fellowships/scholarships is fixed, as specified below.
Fellowship: A maximum of $150,000 each for three-contiguous-years graduate student fellowships (at a maximum of $50,000 per year) will be awarded per student.
Scholarship: $5,000 each for one-year undergraduate scholarships will be awarded per student.
