The Department of Energy has agreed to finance eight radiochemistry students attending Colorado School of Mines, showing the nation’s proactive steps to train scientists in chemical and radioactive elements.
The funds will cover the first two years of the students’ graduate education. This traineeship program is just one step of the collaboration between Washington State University, the Nuclear Science and Engineering program at Mines, and Pacific Northwest, Idaho, and Lawrence Livermore national laboratories.
Chemistry professors Mark Jensen and Jenifer Braley are the co-principal investigators of the program. They will gain approximately $800,000 to help them achieve their traineeship goals for the students involved in their program.
The total of the funding amounts to approximately $3 million. The Department of Energy sees environmental management as well as nuclear energy as crucial needs within the nation; the organization’s leaders seek to train new radiochemistry experts for the future of U.S.security and energy.
Many scientists agree that nuclear energy is one of the best ways to resolve and address growing concerns about the worldwide environment. By training new students in this growing field, the U.S. and the world will enjoy better environmental awareness and overall well-being.
