The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy created Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP) in 2009 to consolidate its university support under one program. NEUP funds nuclear energy research and equipment upgrades at U.S. colleges and universities, and provides student educational support. The Department promotes nuclear energy as a resource capable of meeting the nation's energy, environmental and national security needs by resolving technical, cost, safety, security and proliferation resistance through research, development and demonstration.
Applicants for the NEUP Scholarship must be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents, at least a sophomore in college during the upcoming fall of the year the scholarship is offered, be enrolled in an IUP-accepted college or university and studying nuclear science or engineering or a related field.
