Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut issued the following announcement on Jan. 7.
Three Rivers Community College and Millstone Station (Dominion Nuclear Connecticut) are again offering 16 full scholarships for the Nuclear Engineering Technology Degree program. It is the only program of its kind in New England and is considered the best in the nation. Through classroom, laboratory, and simulator instruction, this program educates students in the theories underlying the safe operation of nuclear power generating stations. For students interested in beginning the program in the Fall of 2019, the application deadline for the scholarship is February 15, 2019.
The scholarships cover the full cost of tuition, books, and fees for a two-year associate degree program, starting with the Fall 2019 semester. Additionally, students receive a guaranteed $150 per month stipend during the nine-month academic year and have a twelve-week paid internship experience at the Millstone Nuclear Station during the summer between their first and second academic year. This gives the students the opportunity to see nuclear utility operations first hand and develop significant practical work experience.
Those opting to enter the workplace as technicians have found their education and experience in strong demand by Connecticut business and industry. Prior scholarship recipients, upon completion of the program, have successfully transferred to nuclear engineering and health physics baccalaureate degree programs nationally.
To learn more about the scholarship and the Nuclear Engineering Technology program curriculum, call Professor James Sherrard, Nuclear Program Chairman and Scholarship Program Coordinator, at 860-215-9472. Or, visit threerivers.edu/nuclear to read more and download the application.
