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?

Read about NIMBY grants in the March/April 2019 Edition of Nuclear News!

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, however, the total budgeted OPD funds for all grants is $50,000. Process changes here reflect lessons learned from the 2018 Pilot Process. 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 linked above. Contact information for program administrator is also found in the application.

Please submit all proposals and attachments to the OPD chair via the sidebar on this page!
