ANS Members -- Do you have an idea that could make a difference in the nuclear community but don’t have the funds to execute it?

Download Application

ANS’s Operations and Power Division is excited to offer all ANS members the opportunity to apply for funds to support a new ANS product, program or other activity that will help the Society achieve the following:

  1. Develop the professional skills and knowledge of ANS members
  2. Advance nuclear science & technology through collaboration and outreach
  3. Meet the needs of ANS utility and supplier members
  4. Engage the public
  5. Engage policymakers

Members are encouraged to be creative, think outside the box, and to not restrict ideas to a dollar amount. All ideas will be considered. While this is a pilot grant program for 2018, your participation, activities, and enthusiasm will help in allocating funds for future years.

Full requirements, program details, and other submission information can be found in the application.

Please submit all proposals via the uploader on this page! If your proposal includes additional attachments or appendices, please send those to OPD chair by email as listed in the application!
