Deadline Extended to May 5
Apply to the Delegation
Thank you for your interest in the Nuclear Engineering Student Delegation. Prior to the application and selection process, there are a few things you should keep in mind: we are always looking for students who are well-rounded and active in their fields. Delegates are usually among the top in their class, are active in extracurricular activities such as ANS and other professional societies, and show a strong commitment to the advancement of their field. Those studying nuclear engineering who have an interest in political science or public policy as well would make excellent candidates. Applicants should have Junior, Senior, or Graduate Student classification at their University at the time of application, and must still be current students during the summer. Graduating seniors should have the intent to attend graduate school in the fall and graduate students should not be graduating before the delegation in July.
The 2013 Nuclear Engineering Student Delegation will take place in July in Washington, D.C. While NESD is sponsored by the Nuclear Energy Institute and the American Nuclear Society, we still require that you secure funds from your school to cover your travel expenses. Past delegates have found that their schools are usually more than willing to support NESD. If accepted, we will assist you in securing funds from your school for travel and expenses.
To apply for the 2013 Nuclear Engineering Student Delegation, please complete the online application form below. We ask that you provide a 1-2 page resume as well as responses to the three questions below (Please use single-spaced, 12-pt. font, and 1-inch margins for the essay answers. Text above the limit for each essay answer will not be considered.):
- Why are you interested in being part of the Nuclear Engineering Student Delegation? (1/2 page limit)
- The Delegation is committed to advocating for Nuclear Science and Technology students to ensure a sustainable nuclear industrial workforce and infrastructure. Write a short policy statement focused on the importance of (federal funding for) education to meet this demand. (1 page limit)
- What current policy (positive or negative) is most critical to the future growth of nuclear systems and technology? (1 page limit)
