The Stanton Foundation now invites any potential researchers to apply the Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship. The selected fellows will spend up to one year period conducting research in the area of nuclear security issues at the Council on Foreign Relations’ (CFR) offices in New York or Washington, DC. The fellows will be awarded benefit of stipend valued up to $110,000.
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. CFR awards up to three fellowships annually. The fellowships will be awarded on the basis of academic and professional accomplishments and promise, and on the merits of the specific research projects proposed. The fellows could work on a wide range of issues, including nuclear terrorism, nuclear proliferation, nuclear weapons, nuclear force posture, and, as it relates to nuclear security, nuclear energy. While in residence full-time at CFR, fellows will be expected to lead a project of their own design, conduct original research, and write at least one policy relevant document. Fellows are expected to participate fully in CFR’s intellectual life. The scholars selected as SNSFs will be mentored by the fellows of CFR’s David Rockefeller Studies Program.
The program awards a stipend of $110,000 for junior faculty and $80,000 for postdoctoral fellows.
