International Affairs Fellowship in Nuclear Security

The Program

The IAF in Nuclear Security program was in operation from 2011 to 2018. 

The International Affairs Fellowship (IAF) in Nuclear Security, sponsored by the Stanton Foundation, offered university-based scholars valuable hands-on experience in the nuclear security policymaking field and placed selected fellows in U.S. government positions and international organizations for a period of twelve months to work with practitioners. The IAF in Nuclear Security closed the gap between research and practice and enriched the teaching and scholarship of academics while benefiting policymakers by exposing them to cutting-edge scholarly research.

Serving as a senior advisor in the Office of the Secretary of Defense on this fellowship has enriched my research and teaching.
Neil Narang, Assistant Professor, University of California, Santa Barbara (2015–2016 IAF in Nuclear Security)
