“This internship is ideal for someone who wants to learn about the current issues of nonproliferation and the steps that are being taken to analyze and solve them. This is a very practical internship as nonproliferation issues can change daily. Having knowledge of the history of this field will greater enhance what one can gain from this internship.

Even with very little knowledge one will come out gaining valuable experiences. From the lectures to the projects with supervisors, there are constant opportunities to learn. This internship allows one to form a perspective on nonproliferation and further study those ideas.”
