The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) offers on-the-job training during the summer for undergraduate students in nonproliferation studies. Participants conduct research on issues related to the spread and control of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), including: nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, and regional security issues in the former Soviet Union, Eurasia, East Asia, South Asia, and the Middle East. In addition to working on ongoing projects at CNS, interns may develop their own research projects under the guidance of senior CNS faculty. Interns will attend CNS lectures and training seminars throughout the summer. Usually, CNS starts the training program at the beginning of June for two to three months. Undergraduate programs include Summer Undergraduate Nonproliferation Internship and Davis United World College Fellowship in Nonproliferation.
