ANS NEED

The American Nuclear Society's Nuclear Engineering Education for the Disadvantaged (NEED) program provides educational and professional assistance to the culturally and economically disadvantaged in order to encourage their educational pursuits in the atomic sciences.

The ANS NEED Committee has oversight for the program.  It approves funds for ANS scholarships that directly support students with economic and cultural disadvantages.  It also provides financial support to the NEED Grants for Academic Programs (NGAP) as well as the George A. Ferguson Motivational Grants (GAFMG) for pre-college school programs.
