Nuclear Intersections: Student Research and Project Grants

The Program in Arms Control & Domestic and International Security (ACDIS) is seeking proposals for up to $1500 for initiatives connected to the danger of countries’ use of their nuclear weapons, either intentionally or as a result of miscalculation or accident. Proposals including consideration of multiple countries or alliances deploying nuclear armed submarines will be given special consideration, but proposals need not necessarily focus primarily on submarines. It is suggested, but not required, that proposals include procedures for connection to students at other Universities, through personal contacts in Illinois and adjacent states and/or via telecommunication with those at more distant higher education institutions.

Students may submit proposals by March 3, 2017, following the instructions at cgs.illinois.edu/activities/global-intersections
