$1.5M will elevate Ohio State’s nuclear engineering research
This month, three researchers from The Ohio State University were awarded a total of $1.23 million by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to advance nuclear energy research and technologies.
Ohio State’s three projects, in combination with 82 other national awards, represent the DOE’s nearly $67 million investment in nuclear energy, facility access, crosscutting technology development and infrastructure research. The awards will be finalized and issued by Sept. 30.
In addition to the three research ventures, DOE provided the university with $317,500 in funding for two fellowships and one scholarship through the Integrated University Program (IUP). This student funding opportunity will attract highly qualified science and engineering students to nuclear energy professions.
When combined, the DOE has committed $1.5 million to transform Ohio State’s nuclear energy research.
