The Nuclear Scholars Initiative aims to provide top graduate students and young professionals from around the country with a unique venue to interact and dialogue with senior experts on nuclear weapons issues.

Each year PONI selects roughly 25 young individuals to comprise the Nuclear Scholars Initiative. the class of Nuclear Scholars participate in a six-month professional development and mentorship program during which they attend monthly workshops and prepare research projects under the guidance of senior experts in the field.

The Nuclear Scholars Initiative is a great way for up-and-comers in the field to add depth and breadth to their understanding of nuclear weapons issues and to publish their original work.
