The University of Michigan has been awarded $1.3 million to teach students about nuclear energy, the U.S. Department of Energy announced today.
An estimated $830,000 will be used to research how new reactor designs and technologies can have wider applications, while $465,000 will go to graduate fellowships and $20,000 for four undergraduate scholarships for students who are planning for careers in nuclear energy according to The Detroit Free Press.
A U-M representative could not be immediately reached for comment.
The U.S. Department of Energy's Nuclear Energy University Program and Integrated University Program provide funding 46 schools across the country.
“We must invest in the next generation of American scientists and engineers in order to fulfill our commitment to restarting America’s nuclear industry and making sure that America stays competitive in the 21st Century,” said Secretary of Energy Steven Chu. “These investments in Michigan will help train and educate our future energy leaders, while developing the innovations we need to create new jobs and export opportunities for American-made nuclear technologies.”
