Program Summary

Program Summary

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.

Awards: The maximum amount of funding that the NRC will award for an application may not exceed $150,000.00 total costs per year, provided that an additional $50,000.00 is fully matched by the institution (for a total of $200,000.00 per year given full match of $50,000.00 per year from the institution). Awards are for three years and may not be renewed.
