CFR 2016–2017 International Affairs Fellowship in Nuclear Security, Stanton Foundation

Program
The International Affairs Fellowship in Nuclear Security (IAF-NS), sponsored by the Stanton Foundation, offers university-based scholars valuable hands-on experience in the nuclear security policymaking field and places selected fellows in U.S. government positions or international organizations for a period of twelve months to work with practitioners. The IAF-NS closes the gap between research and practice and enriches the teaching and scholarship of academics, while also benefiting policymakers by exposing them to cutting-edge scholarly research. Potential topics appropriate for the fellowship include nuclear terrorism, nuclear proliferation, nuclear weapons, nuclear force posture, security implications of nuclear energy, international security cooperation, deterrence, and war and conflict. CFR awards approximately two fellowships annually.

Eligibility
The IAF-NS is only open to faculty members with tenure or on tenure-track lines at accredited universities and who propose to spend a year working in government or at an international organization. Qualified candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are eligible to work in the United States and be between the ages of twenty-nine and fifty. Former Stanton nuclear security fellows who meet the eligibility requirements can apply.

Fellowship Award 
The program awards a stipend of $125,000 and the duration of the fellowship is twelve months, preferably beginning in September.

How to Apply
Interested candidates who meet the program’s eligibility requirements can apply online. The online application deadline is January 16.
