NRC: U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), Faculty Development Grant, Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 NRC-HQ-84-15-FOA-0002
This program provides funding to support nuclear science, engineering, and related disciplines to develop a workforce capable of supporting the design, construction, operation, and regulation of nuclear facilities and the safe handling of nuclear materials. This announcement is for faculty development grants. The objectives of the Faculty Development Program are to attract and retain highly-qualified individuals in academic teaching careers. The grants specifically target probationary, tenure-track faculty during the first 6 years of their career and new faculty hires in the following academic areas: Nuclear Engineering, Health Physics, Radiochemistry, Probability Risk Assessment (Levels 2 & 3) and related disciplines. Grants may include support for developing applications for research and amounts for initiating or continuing research projects in their areas of expertise. Other areas might include course development, equipment, stipends, participation in professional society meetings, and preparation of papers, travel, and associated expenses. The NRC may increase funds to the extent that a portion of the award is matched by the institution. The program provides support to enable newer faculty to enhance their careers as professors and researchers in the university department where employed. The research supported by this announcement is intended to benefit the nuclear sector broadly
