Saul Levine

The Saul Levine Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2001 by the ANS Nuclear Installations Safety Division in recognition of the pioneering contributions to the enhancement of nuclear safety made by Saul Levine. It is intended to support graduate education of meritorious nuclear engineering students.

Saul Levine was one of the pioneers in advancing the understanding of nuclear reactor safety. As a member of the Regulatory Branch of the Atomic Energy Commission, one of his most prominent contributions, made together with Norman Rasmussen, is the pioneering "Reactor Safety Study" (WASH-1400), completed during 1973-1975. The Reactor Safety Study was the first major risk assessment of nuclear power plants and is a fundamental document to today's risk assessments. Saul Levine died in 1984.
