(Orangburg, South Carolina) - South Carolina State University recently received a $100,000 donation from Shaw/AREVA MOX Services for the university’s Nuclear Engineering program.
The funds will be used to support the Summer Nuclear Science Institute, designed to expose high school students and guidance counselors to nuclear science and various fields of engineering. Each year, the Summer Nuclear Science Institute, which is hosted on the campus of SC State University, attracts more than 60 participants.
The financial contribution serves as an excellent complement to MOX outreach programs. It also allows SC State University’s NEP to continue to create a population of high achieving young students who will emerge as leaders and adopt an understanding and appreciation of the benefits of nuclear power and nuclear science.
