Post-Fellowship Employment for the Class of 2017-2018

For over 20 years, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Graduate Fellowship Program (NGFP) has been developing the next generation of nuclear security, nonproliferation policy, and technical leaders. NGFP offers unmatched opportunities for graduate-level students to gain hands-on experience and explore careers across the NNSA enterprise. Our fellows are highly sought after by employers, with many going on to make important contributions to NNSA and other leading national security organizations including national laboratories.

The demand for our fellows is growing. NGFP class size has grown from three fellows in 1995 to over 50 fellows in recent years. Our fellows' impact has expanded as well—fellows' expertise is distributed enterprise-wide, to include the U.S. Department of Energy and the Department of State.

NGFP is a recognized resource for bringing top talent to our nation’s nuclear security critical missions, and it continues to evolve and build future leaders who can help create solutions to complex challenges facing the nation. NGFP can be your gateway into a career in nuclear security and nonproliferation. Apply today to join us in protecting our nation and the world!
