Major Fellowship Activities: Powers conducted an international survey of all civilian nuclear power plants in Eastern Europe and the NIS. The results culminated in a report which she co-authored entitled “Difficult Legacy: Spent Fuel from Soviet Reactors” detailing spent fuel outputs for each country, as well as their positions in regard to commercial spent fuel reprocessing. She participated in daily projects for both the nuclear and international programs, translated numerous documents from Russian to English, contributed to the research concerning the Iran-Russian nuclear reactor deal, as well as the campaign against completing the Mochovoc Nuclear Reactors in the Slovak Republic.

My Scoville Fellowship provided a wonderful welcome to the arms control community and to Washington, DC. Those involved with the fellowship, especially former fellows, proved a wealth of information and advice. I look forward to continued active involvement with the program.
