NGFP Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What areas of work are NGFP Fellows involved with?
NGFP Fellows work for the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), which has a number of national security focus areas. Traditionally, NGFP has focused on the nonproliferation offices, including areas such as research and development, international security, and fissile materials disposition. However, in recent years, the program has expanded drastically, allowing for NGFP Fellows to explore national security areas outside of nonproliferation. These areas include maintaining the active stockpile, counterterrorism policy, infrastructure and operations, budget, and far more.
