Nuclear Bursary

The Nuclear Bursary provides financial support to individuals for education and training opportunities to help with starting or furthering their professional career in nuclear. The Nuclear Bursary is open for applications until 9 April 2021.

This round of the Nuclear Bursary has a particular focus on skills development for a green economic recovery, particularly focussing on the UK’s ambitious programme to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. We therefore particularly welcome applications from individuals whose roles might be at risk within carbon intensive industries, and who are looking to transition into nuclear.

Applications are also invited from:

  • Individuals, who work in nuclear, that have been furloughed or have been made redundant due to the pandemic who wish to upskill to continue their career in nuclear.
  • SMEs in the nuclear supply chain who are looking for support in meeting the skills challenge within their business.
  • Individuals looking to undertake training/upskill for a position that has been identified as a skills gap in the industry.

The Nuclear Bursary Scheme, managed by NSAN and funded by the NDA and ECITB, supports the delivery of several of the NSSG’s key Skills Strategy themes including supporting apprenticeships, transferability and exciting the next generation.

The Bursary also contributes to the delivery of the Nuclear Sector Deal, which aims to improve the productivity and competitiveness of the UK nuclear supply chain, reduce barriers to entry and encourage SMEs to enter the sector.

The Bursary can be used to support placements, internships, secondments and programmes of study relevant to the sector, providing a contribution towards the cost of the course.
