Special Fellowships in Nuclear Science.—
In order to meet the increasing demand for highly trained scientists and engineers in nuclear fields, the Atomic Energy Commission has broadened one of its special fellowship programs to include study through the doctorate level. Fellowships, to be known as the "AEC Special Fellowships in Nuclear Science and Engineering," have been established to provide a total of 150 fellowship grants on a one-year basis to first-year, second-year, and third-year graduate students. The fellowships carry basic stipends of $1,600, $1,800, and $2,000, respectively, with additional allowances for dependents, tuition, and travel.
