Nuclear Threat Initiative

Nuclear Threat Initiative

The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) is a non-profit organization with a mission to strengthen global security by reducing the risk of use and preventing the spread of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons, and to work to build the trust, transparency and security which are preconditions to the ultimate fulfillment of the Non-Proliferation Treaty’s goals and ambitions.

NTI can provide a unique educational experience to Scoville Fellows by assisting in developing leadership skills that can serve the Fellow throughout a career in the peace and security field and by facilitating their contribution to the critically important work of NTI.

Depending on interest and expertise, a Scoville Fellow could work on one of the following topics: identification of indicators and methods of tracking progress on nuclear materials security, research and participation in efforts to promote nuclear materials transparency and cooperation, and development of exercises to identify critical issues and to promote action on a range of topics. The Fellow would also attend relevant local meetings and Congressional hearings, and support a range of NTI activities.
