Nuclear Security Fellowship

Nuclear security is one of the greatest challenges facing the world today. The spread of nuclear weapons to unstable and hostile states, the risk of conflict between nuclear armed nations, and the potential for terrorist groups to acquire nuclear arms all demand new thinking and creative policy solutions.

The Nuclear Security Fellowship Program, made possible by a generous grant from the Stanton Foundation, offers younger scholars studying nuclear security issues the opportunity to spend a period of twelve months at the Council on Foreign Relations’ (CFR) offices in New York or Washington, DC, conducting policy-relevant research.
