Nuclear Forensics Graduate Fellowship Program

The NFGFP provides support to graduate students pursing doctoral degrees in nuclear, geochemical, and other disciplines directly related to nuclear forensics. This program aims to develop the next generation of highly qualified scientists to meet U.S. Government needs for nuclear forensics expertise and to build a viable student career path in nuclear forensics. Fellows gain unique, hands-on experience through two 10-week laboratory practicums at a Department of Energy national laboratory, Department of Defense laboratory or federal agency conducting research related to technical nuclear forensics, and close interaction with technical and policy experts throughout the nuclear forensics community.
