Scoville Fellowship Update June 2015

Following is an update on the activities of the Scoville Fellowship since October.

In March we held the 2015 Scoville Fellowship annual reception at the Rayburn House Office Building. Senator Chris Murphy gave the keynote address and we celebrated the newest Scoville Fellows and commemorated the 100th anniversary of Dr. Scoville’s birth. See photos and videos of the event.

March 16, 2015 was the centenary of the birth of Herbert Scoville, Jr. See him discussing the importance of avoiding the use of nuclear weapons.

We have added the Alliance for Peacebuilding as a host organization to provide more opportunities for future Scoville Fellows interested in working on conflict resolution.

We recently created a post on the social media website Medium titled 14 Reasons To Get a Job In Peace and Security a (hopefully) humorous take on the benefits of working for arms control and conflict resolution in Washington, DC. This post was created with input from our board, fellows, and staff with the goal of raising the profile of the Scoville Fellowship.
