The American Nuclear Society believes in rewarding its members for their academic, services and leadership excellence. To do so, scholarships are granted to qualified student members of ANS Student Sections who have demonstrated a high commitment to the standards set by the Society's constituents.

All scholarships are funded by contributions from the ANS Board, ANS professional divisions and member donations through renewals. The total number and amount of scholarships are based upon the funds available each year, which varies each year.

Scholarships are granted to high school, undergraduate and graduate students alike, and will be awarded at the beginning of each school year. Evaluation is based upon numerous factors, including: academic preparation (GPA and test scores), awards, honors, leadership within the ANS, references, and career goals and objectives


Undergraduate and graduate scholarships are open to ANS student members enrolled in a course of study relating to a degree in nuclear science or nuclear engineering.

All applications must be sponsored by a faculty advisor of an ANS Student Section or an individual ANS member.

U.S. and non-U.S. residents may apply if they are enrolled in and attending an accredited institution in the United States with an established ANS Student Section or Alpha Nu Sigma chapter.

Incoming freshmen awards are open to graduating high-school seniors who have enrolled, full-time, in college courses and are pursuing a degree in nuclear engineering or have the intent to pursue a degree in nuclear engineering.

$1,000 scholarships (expected for incoming freshmen)
