Council on Foreign Relations Seeking 2022-2023 Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship Applicants

Nov 03, 2021 • Views -

Sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations

The Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship offers younger scholars studying nuclear security issues the opportunity to spend a period of twelve months at CFR’s offices in New York or Washington, DC, conducting policy-relevant research. While in residence full time at CFR, selected fellows will lead a project of their own design, conduct original research, and write at least one policy-relevant document. 

Fellowship Award

The duration of the fellowship is twelve months, beginning in September. The program awards a stipend of $110,000 for junior faculty and $80,000 for postdoctoral fellows. Fellows are considered independent contractors rather than employees of CFR, and are not eligible for employment benefits, including health insurance.


The deadline to apply is December 15, 2021.
