South Carolina is well represented among colleges that received grants for nuclear education. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission announced a list of 60 schools getting $15 million in education grants aimed at expanding the workforce in nuclear-related fields. South Carolina,as one of the major nuclear states, had quite a few schools make the list and totalling over $1.1 million in funding behind only Texas, Pennsylvania, and Missouri.
Included were $400,000 in fellowship money for the University of South Carolina and $400,000 in faculty development grants for Clemson. Three grants totaling $350,000 were also split among three community colleges–Aiken Tech, Florence-Darlington Tech and Midlands Tech.
Most of that money will go into scholarship funds.
