NORWICH — Three Rivers Community College and Millstone Station (Dominion Nuclear Connecticut) are offering 16 full scholarships for the nuclear engineering technology degree program. It is the only program of its kind in New England and one of three in the country.

Through classroom, laboratory, and simulator instruction, the program educates students in the theories underlying the safe operation of nuclear power generating stations.

For students interested in beginning the program in the fall of 2018, the application deadline for the scholarship is Feb. 15.

The scholarships cover the full cost of tuition, books, and fees for a two-year associate degree program.  Additionally, students receive a guaranteed $150 per month stipend during the nine-month academic year and have a 12-week paid internship experience at the Millstone Nuclear Station during the summer between their first and second academic year. This gives students the opportunity to see nuclear utility operations first hand and develop significant practical work experience.
