The NRC and CENG Scholarship Program

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and Constellation Energy Nuclear Group, LLCSM (CENG), a joint venture of Constellation Energy and the EDF Group, are awarding scholarships through the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) Foundation for qualified students. Students pursuing the Associate in Applied Science degree in Nuclear Engineering Technology (NET) can apply for these scholarships. The objective is to provide educational opportunities to academically talented students who wish to pursue careers in the nuclear energy field. These scholarships also promote full-time enrollment and degree achievement. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.

Scholarship recipients will receive:
