Attached you will find a solicitation for the Rickover Fellowship Program in Nuclear Engineering for the 2021-2022 Award Cycle.

This program is designed to meet the needs of the Naval Reactors Division of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for appropriately trained personnel for the maintenance and development of science and engineering technology as it pertains to naval nuclear propulsion.  The program will assist in preparing students for roles in naval nuclear propulsion and will support the broader objective of advancing fission energy development through the research efforts of the fellows. The technical areas with greatest interest include reactor physics, nuclear materials science and engineering, radiation shielding technology, thermal hydraulics, computational fluid dynamics, and acoustic technology. The principle emphasis is on students seeking doctoral degrees in nuclear engineering, or in closely related fields.

Please forward the attached booklet to anyone interested and encourage students to apply for this program.  This program description and all electronic application materials can be found at www.scuref.org.
