I look forward to where this thread leads.
I am also seeking current information about each 'George H. Miley LENR Undergraduate Scholarship' recipient.

Requirements and Description:
Professor George H. Miley established this scholarship in 2004. Throughout his career at Illinois, starting in 1961, Professor Miley gained recognition as a vigorous and prolific nuclear scientist, as well as an administrative leader. He pioneered research in nuclear pumped lasers, advanced fuel fusion, fission reactors and nuclear batteries, writing several books on the technologies and gaining worldwide honors along the way. He became the first director of Illinois' interdisciplinary fusion program, and also chaired the nuclear engineering department.
Each year, NPRE chooses among the department's continuing students one or more highly motivated undergraduates as the winner/winners of the Miley/NPRE Scholarship.

Dr. James Corones founded the Krell Institute (taking the name from the classic 1956 science fiction movie “Forbidden Planet”) in 1997 to manage three Department of Energy (DOE) programs: the DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship, Adventures in Supercomputing, and the Undergraduate Computational Engineering and Sciences Project.
Krell’s location arises from Corones’ background as a tenured mathematics professor at Iowa State University in Ames, and as a researcher and administrator at Ames Laboratory, a DOE facility ISU manages. He chose to maintain the Midwest location to employ experienced staff and maintain access to a qualified science and technology workforce. https://www.krellinst.org/about-krell/our-history
The Krell Institute manages two Department of Energy (DOE) fellowships that identify and support the nation’s top science and technology graduate students. The DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) is funded by the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and Office of Science. The NNSA also funds the Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship (SSGF). https://www.krellinst.org/fellowships
Two Krell fellowship recipients previously received the 2012 George H. Miley LENR Undergraduate Scholarship. Interestingly they also had earlier received Nuclear Regulatory Commission Scholarships. It seems that studying LENR no longer hurts one's career.
