It helps women actively participate and make meaningful contributions, at the leadership level, to this sector. This includes serving as role models for future generations of women seeking to enter the field. Project activities include: (1) providing up to 25 two-year scholarships in non-proliferation studies; and (2) providing internship opportunities to gain work experience in nuclear security at the International Atomic Energy Agency.
