Nuclear education and research at Texas A&M University are getting a big boost.

U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX), Texas' senior senator, Tuesday announced $623,961 in U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) funding for Texas A&M.

"These NRC funds will help Texas A&M University continue its national leadership in research and education," Sen. Hutchison said.

Texas A&M University will receive $130,000 in funding for a first year nuclear education grant entitled, "Computational Fluid Dynamics for Nuclear Applications Curriculum Development to facilitate Nuclear Energy in the 21st Century."

The Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) at Texas A&M will receive a $193,961 to support its Undergraduate Scholarship Program and a $300,000 grant to fund a faculty development program entitled, "NRC Early Career Enrichment Project."
