Scoville Fellowship Update October 2017

Following are highlights of the Scoville Fellowship since our last update in October 2016. 

Watch videos from the 2017 Scoville Fellowship annual reception with remarks by former Secretary of Energy, and current chief executive officer and co-chairman of the Nuclear Threat Initiative Dr. Ernest J. Moniz, about the negotiations leading to the Iran nuclear agreement, as well as introductions by the recent Scoville Fellows. Subscribe to our YouTube channel to receive our latest videos. See photos from the event.

Earlier this year we launched a blog for our current and former fellows to discuss how they became interested in international peace and security issues, describe some of their fellowship activities, and reflect on how the fellowship helped launch their career. This may be helpful to prospective applicants who want to learn more about the fellowship.

In December 2016 we created a U.S. map showing where fellows received their undergraduate degrees and a list of those universities. We updated this list to reflect the spring and fall 2017 fellows.

In order to give our fellows more options in selecting leading organizations at which to work and to increase our influence and impact with the peace and security community in Washington, DC, our board voted to add two groups as host organizations, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, where fellows will be able to work at the Project on Nuclear Issues and Proliferation Prevention Program, and Win Without War.

In an effort to showcase our fellows’ contributions to public policy debate we have compiled a list of articles by current and former Scoville Fellows on NPR and other public radio networks and updated our lists of articles in the Bulletin of the Atomic ScientistsThe Hill, and The National Interest

If you have not already done so please read the bios of our spring and fall 2017 fellows.
