“The undergraduate research assistant internship at CNS is a great opportunity to learn about all aspects of the nonproliferation field and apply that knowledge to research projects of interest. For someone with a social science and regional background, I learned so much from CNS experts and was able to contextualize and apply the new nonproliferation knowledge to regional politics and society. The education that I’ve gotten in just one summer really supplements my coursework at my home institution, and I am grateful for this opportunity and eager to apply this new knowledge in other academic or work settings.”
