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.


  • Applicants must be U.S. citizens.
  • Applicants must possess a strong record of professional achievement.
  • Applicants must be postdoctoral fellows or junior faculty in a tenure-track position at a recognized university.
  • Junior faculty at law schools or with a law degree as their terminal degree are also eligible.

Fellowship Award

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

Deadline: December 15, 2019
