CNS Summer Program Draws Top-level Undergraduates
recently welcomed thirteen students to its
Summer Undergraduate Nonproliferation Program. Student participants were selected from top schools, including Middlebury College, Brown University, Yale University, Occidental College, University of Georgia, College of William and Mary, Harvey Mudd College, University of California, Davis, Cornell University, and Smith College.
Over the course of the program, students will receive job training, work closely with CNS experts, and attend a lecture series on the spread and control of weapons of mass destruction and regional nonproliferation issues. The students will also be given hands-on training with new tools for nonproliferation. In addition to this training, students will engage in a diplomacy simulation on the topic of the Convention on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons led by Jean duPreez, a former senior official with the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty.
