A. STATEMENT OF OBJECTIVESThis Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to award multiple cooperative agreements to accredited United States (U.S.) two- and four-year colleges and universities (Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs)) to receive and administer scholarship and fellowship funding—provided through the Integrated University Program (IUP) and as administered by the Department of Energy, Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE)—on behalf of selected students attending these U.S. IHEs. The selection of students to receive scholarships and fellowships through the program will occur via a separate DOE-NE process.A.1 BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVESIUP works to attract qualified nuclear science and engineering students (NS&E) to nuclear energy professions by providing undergraduate level scholarships and graduate level fellowships. The scholarships and fellowships are focused on two-, four-year, and graduate programs in science and engineering disciplines related to nuclear energy such as Nuclear Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemistry, Health Physics, Nuclear Materials Science, Radiochemistry, Applied Nuclear Physics, Nuclear Policy, Radiation Protection Technology, Nuclear Power Technology, Nuclear Maintenance Technology, and Nuclear Engineering Technology at U.S. IHEs.DOE-NE’s mission is to encourage development and exploration of advanced nuclear science and technology. DOE-NE promotes nuclear energy as a resource capable of meeting the nation’s energy, environmental, and national security needs by resolving scientific, technical, and regulatory challenges through research, development, and demonstration.IUP supports DOE-NE’s Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP), which enables outstanding, cutting-edge, and innovative research at U.S. IHEs through the following:• Integrating research and development (R&D) at U.S. IHEs, national laboratories, and industry to revitalize nuclear education and support NE’sPrograms• Attracting the brightest students to the nuclear professions and supporting the nation’s intellectual capital in science and engineering disciplines• Improving U.S. IHE’s infrastructure for conducting R&D and educating students• Facilitating knowledge transfer to the next generation ofworkersEducating undergraduate and graduate students in NS&E will:• Support the ongoing need for personnel who can develop and maintain the nation’s nuclear power technology• Enhance the R&D capabilities of U.S. IHEs• Fulfill national demand for highly trained scientists and engineers to work in NS&E areas
