In March 2014, the Korean government established an academic think tank called “Nuclear Non-Proliferation Education & Research Center (NEREC)” at KAIST to undertake education and research to foster international nuclear non-proliferation conducive to peaceful use of nuclear technology.
As a major part of the Center’s annual activities, NEREC runs “Summer Fellows Program” for undergraduate and graduate students. For the last 9 years, around 232 students from 95 universities in 47 countries had a wonderful summer time by studying and doing research on nuclear nonproliferation and experiencing Korean culture. We would love to meet another batch of excellent students this summer.
The 2023 NEREC Summer Fellows Program, the 10th in its series, will be held as follows:
o Period : July 10 to August 11, 2023 (5 weeks, OFFLINE program)
o Place: KAIST, Daejeon, South Korea
o Activities: Lectures on Nuclear energy and Nonproliferation,Group research, Field studies in Korea, Participation and poster presentation at the NEREC Conference on Nuclear Nonproliferation and Korean cultural events
o Benefits: Lodging & Meals for 5 weeks and all costs related to field trips and Conference participation (approximately USD 3,500 per person)
