We are currently accepting applications for the Nuclear Scholars Initiative Class of 2019! The Nuclear Scholars Initiative aims to provide top graduate students and young professionals from around the country with a unique venue to interact and dialogue with senior experts on nuclear weapons issues.

This annual program hosts young professionals once per month at CSIS in Washington, DC, where they participate in daylong workshops with senior government officials, policy experts, and technical experts. Over the course of the 6-month program, Scholars are required to prepare a research product and write a blog post. Th

e research product options include a journal article, an op-ed, a presentation or a collaborative research product. Scholars will be given the opportunity to develop their research product in teams throughout the program, be matched with a senior expert to review their research, and later publish in a journal produced by CSIS, present at a PONI conference or publish externally.

For more information, please visit the application page, which can be found here.

Applications are due on October 19, 2018 to Sarah Minot (sminot@csis.org).
