Daniel Lago has been offered a Nuclear Energy University Programs (NEUP) fellowship sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE). Daniel is among the 31 graduate students nationwide who will receive $50,000 annually over the next three years in addition to a summer internship at a National Laboratory to support his study in the nuclear field and to gain the skills and experiences needed to succeed in a nuclear science and engineering career. Daniel received his BS degree in Nuclear Engineering from UF in 2011 and is now pursuing a Ph.D. at Georgia Tech.
Mateusz Monterial, also a graduate of UF Nuclear Engineering with a B.S. in 2011 was offered both the NEUP fellowship and the Nuclear Forensics Graduate Fellowship (NFGF), and he plans to take the latter. The NFGF is jointly sponsored by the United States Departments of Homeland Security and Defense (DHS/DoD), and it provides support to graduate students pursuing doctoral degrees in nuclear, geochemical, and other disciplines directly relevant to nuclear forensics. The NFGF is a highly competitive fellowship with 8 fellows appointed nationwide for the 2012-2013 program. Mateusz will be pursuing a Ph.D. at University of Michigan in Nuclear Engineering.
The Nuclear Engineering Program at UF is very proud of both Daniel and Mateusz and wish them all the best in their future career in nuclear science and engineering.
