NPRE – George H. Miley LENR Undergraduate Scholarship

Requirements and Description: 

MAKE A GIFT to support the
George H. Miley-LENR Scholarship.

Professor George H. Miley established this scholarship in 2004. Throughout his career at Illinois, starting in 1961, Professor Miley gained recognition as a vigorous and prolific nuclear scientist, as well as an administrative leader. He pioneered research in nuclear pumped lasers, advanced fuel fusion, fission reactors and nuclear batteries, writing several books on the technologies and gaining worldwide honors along the way. He became the first director of Illinois' interdisciplinary fusion program, and also chaired the nuclear engineering department.

Each year, NPRE chooses among the department's continuing students one or more highly motivated undergraduates as the winner/winners of the Miley/NPRE Scholarship.
