Scholarships, paid internships offered for nuclear energy students

A new MiraCosta College program offers a free college education, a stable job and great pay.

MiraCosta has partnered with the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) to offer a program to train students for jobs in nuclear energy.

Plus, SONGS is offering 48 full-tuition and book scholarships for qualifying students who enroll in the new Maintenance and Operations Job Preparation Program. SONGS is also offering $20.97 an hour paid summer internships.

Interested students can learn more about the program at a special information session scheduled for Thursday, April 22, 6-7 p.m. in Room 3601 (Little Theatre) at MiraCosta College, 1 Barnard Drive, Oceanside.

The Maintenance & Operations Job Preparation program is a collaboration between the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station and MiraCosta College. The program prepares students for skilled, entry-level careers in the nuclear power industry.

Careers in nuclear energy offer challenging work, competitive salaries, and great potential for growth and advancement. Plus, the high demand for nuclear maintenance and operations personnel means there are great opportunities to start a high-paying, satisfying career.
