The American Nuclear Society (ANS) plays an important role in helping students complete their post-high school education and prepare for careers in nuclear science and technology (NS&T). Among the programs available is the long list of ANS Scholarships for those looking for funding opportunities. More than 20 scholarships named after pioneers and leaders in NS&T and other general scholarships are awarded each year to students with outstanding academic credentials. Special scholarships are available to students who have significant economical needs in order to pursue degrees in NS&T. In addition to the scholarships for students entering their sophomore year and higher in college, ANS also provides scholarships to incoming freshmen. Since it was established in 1954, ANS's core purpose is to promote the awareness and understanding of NS&T. What better way than to support the development and education of those who will research and implement the future applications of nuclear science and technology.
