GWU Nuclear Security Working Group Congressional Fellowships


On behalf of the Nuclear Security Working Group— a bipartisan network of experts and current and former practitioners working to inform discourse and build consensus on major challenges across the spectrum of nuclear and national security issues—I want to make your career services office aware that NSWG is now accepting applications for the 2019 GW-NSWG Congressional Nuclear Security Fellowship.

In 2019, we are offering up to eight fellowships to provide the next generation of national security leaders with the opportunity to spend a year in the U.S. Congress working on nuclear and national security issues. Fellows will spend one year (January 2019 – January 2020) working in a designated House or Senate office. Stipends range from $65,000 to $85,000 depending on qualifications. Fellows’ duties will include supporting the priorities and activities of House and Senate offices and organizing bipartisan briefings and events on timely national and nuclear security issues for Members and staff. Fellows will also help develop relationships with the broader security policy community for their respective offices.

More information can be found on the NSWG website or the application page. Attached to this email is an informational brochure on the Fellowship opportunity. Please be aware that all applications are due by August 31, 2018.

I have already posted the opportunity on your job board, but ask that you share this opportunity with recent graduates or alumni who may be interested. The Fellowship is an excellent opportunity for promising scholars and policy practitioners who may be transitioning to mid-career or for any outstanding professional seeking to contribute to and gain valuable experience in the legislative branch. Profiles of current fellows are also available on our website.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to check our website or email
