2020 Summer

Due to the global impact of COVID-19, CNS decided to offer the Summer 2020 Undergraduate Nonproliferation Fellowship Program online. Fellows participated in a series of lectures in the fields of nonproliferation, disarmament, and arms control. The summer online lectures series was followed by a mentorship program and an online training during January 2021.

Despite the existing challenges, we were excited to welcome 14 outstanding and enthusiastic undergraduate fellows from all over the nation to CNS ! The following is the activity highlights from the Summer 2020 and January 2021 programs.

The 2020-2021 Online Undergraduate Fellowship Program was successfully completed!
