2019 CNTA Nuclear Science and Technology Mini Grants Program

Citizens for Nuclear Technology Awareness
2019 Nuclear Science and Technology Mini Grants Program

Citizens for Nuclear Technology Awareness is a nonprofit organization that advocates for all aspects of nuclear technologies. Our mission is to educate the public by providing objective information on the value of nuclear technology with respect to our health, economy, environment, and national security.

We live in a radioactive world! We use nuclear science and technology to power our homes, diagnose and treat serious health issues, make our food supplies safe and high yielding, and make our world better. However, the general public lacks understanding of the concepts of radiation and nuclear materials, how we can deal with them safely, and how important they are to our lives.

In 2019, CNTA wants to partner with area educators to provide innovative instruction to high school students on principles of radiation, fundamentals of radioactive materials, and applications of nuclear technologies. CNTA is establishing a mini-grant program to facilitate this educational outreach. Mini-grants in an amount of up to $500 will be awarded for winning applications. The mini-grants can be used to fund a project in any area of science or technology that promotes an increased understanding of atomic and nuclear fundamentals, radiation and nuclear materials safety, and applications of nuclear technology.


High Schools in the South Carolina counties of Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Edgefield, and Orangeburg; and in the Georgia counties of Columbia, Richmond, and Burke are invited to submit proposals. Teachers who are members of CNTA are also eligible to apply regardless of school location.
