This fellowship program encourages students to seek advanced education in technical areas related to nuclear forensics and provides incentives for universities to invest in and further develop radiochemistry and other nuclear forensics-related academic programs. The Nuclear Forensics Graduate Fellowship Program (NFGFP) gives highly motivated students an exceptional opportunity to apply their knowledge to enhance U.S. national security. As a key component of the broader National Nuclear Forensics Expertise Development Program, the NFGFP enables fellows to gain unique, hands-on experience through laboratory practicums and close interaction with technical and policy experts throughout the nuclear forensics community.
Students with undergraduate degrees in the physical sciences, the life sciences, or engineering are eligible to apply for the NFGFP. Graduate students in these technical disciplines who will have at least two full years of graduate work remaining at the beginning of September 2015 are also eligible. Applicants must be pursuing or planning to pursue doctoral studies in specialties directly relevant to technical nuclear forensics. These specialties include but are not limited to radiochemistry, geochemistry, nuclear physics, nuclear engineering, materials science, and analytical chemistry. Applicants must be U.S. citizens.
