NEREC Summer Fellows Program

Nuclear Nonproliferation Education and Research Center

Overview

The NEREC Summer Fellows Program, the only intensive short-term education and training course of nuclear nonproliferation for high-school, undergraduate and graduate students, aims to train and nurture next generation international leaders in nuclear nonproliferation.

For five to six weeks, fellow students from various majors such as nuclear engineering, international relations and economics from top-notch schools at home and abroad will participate in research activities including lectures and seminars, group projects and research work, and field trips visiting government agencies, think-tanks and nuclear facilities in Korea and overseas as well.

The program will provide opportunities not only for interacting with other fellow colleagues, but also for meeting face-to-face with experts and leaders, which will contribute to build networks for further collaboration and achievement, and ultimately improve nuclear nonproliferation culture for Korea and the international society.
