Radiochemistry Summer School
Radiochemistry Summer School
Radiochemistry Summer School is sponsored by the U.S. Department of
Energy's Office of Nuclear Energy and hosted this year by the Oregon
State University School of Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE) and
the Department of Chemistry in Corvallis, Oregon. Running from June 18
through July 28, 2017, the school is for undergraduate students in
chemistry and related disciplines (physics, nuclear engineering).
Candidates should be junior or senior level undergraduates with an
interest in nuclear science, and have completed a minimum of two years
of chemistry and one year of physics. Applicants must be U.S.
Citizens. Student award includes $4,000 stipend as well as coverage of
housing and travel costs. Upon satisfactory completion of the summer
school, participating students will receive eight transferable credits
at the 400 level.

28, 2017. The summer school is limited to 12 students and acceptance
notification will be sent by March 31, 2017.
Blending classwork and labwork, participants in our school will learn
the physics of nuclear structure, radioactive decay and nuclear
reactions, principles of radiodetection, chemistry of actinides and
fission products, radiolysis, production and separation of
radionuclides. The nuclear fuel cycle will be presented from
fundamental chemistry to engineering applications.
Students will benefit from the expertise of our guest lecturers
invited from the DOE national labs and collaborating university
partners, and work on their independent research projects under
faculty guidance and present their results at a student conference at
the end of the summer school.
Students will also tour Hanford Site, AREVA and Energy Northwest
facilities in Richland, Washington, and the Oregon State TRIGA
Research Reactor in Corvallis.
In addition, student will be guided about their future career options
field in this field and application for a university graduate program
in nuclear and radiochemistry in the U.S.

4. Career Opportunities
FrogTutoring is an educational technology platform that
facilitate 1-on-1 private tutoring offering the full range of academic
courses and test prep in your area. Our company has been featured on
CNN and other media outlets.
We’re looking to hire some of your students to work not just as tutors
but also as mentors to students throughout your community and
surrounding cities. We have found that when students (K - 12 &
College) are tutored by college students, they become more receptive
and enthusiastic about the subject. I think this will be a great
opportunity for your students to encourage, engage as well give great
advice as to what to expect in college to local youth, ALL while
enhancing their resume.
Not only will your students tutor/mentor youth throughout your area,
but they will receive great benefits as well!
Great pay- Minimum of $30 per session
