The Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship (SNSF) 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. Potential topics appropriate for the fellowship include nuclear terrorism, nuclear proliferation, nuclear weapons, nuclear force posture, and as it relates to nuclear security, and nuclear energy. Selected fellows will be expected to lead a project of their own design, conduct original research, and write at least one policy relevant document. CFR awards two fellowships annually.
