Jump to Comments

On December 8, 2010, the Monterey Institute of International Studies and its James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) announced that the MacArthur Foundation has awarded a $475,000 grant in support of CNS’s education and training programs in the areas of nuclear nonproliferation and terrorism.  The two-year grant will run through October 31, 2012.

Major components of the new CNS initiative include: expanded on-the-job training opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students; provision of intensive “short courses” on nonproliferation for diplomats and mid-career professionals at different venues in the United States and abroad; development of online courses and instructional material to be used in conjunction with more traditional in-classroom courses; introduction of nonproliferation curricula and train-the-trainer programs to high schools in the United States, Russia and China; and expansion of course offerings for the new master’s degree program in nonproliferation and terrorism studies at the Monterey Institute.

The MacArthur Foundation is one of the nation’s largest independent foundations, and “supports creative people and effective institutions committed to building a more just, verdant, and peaceful world.” For more information, visit
