Graduate student awarded NNSA fellowship

March 16, 2015
Ian Andrews, a second-year masters of public policy student specializing in international security and economic policy, has been selected as a 2015 fellow for the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA)’s competitive Graduate Fellowship Program. Andrews was one of two Maryland School of Public Policy finalists for this year’s fellowship and he is the second School of Public Policy student to receive an NNSA fellowship in the past two years. As part of the program, in June, Andrews will begin working at NNSA’s Office of Infrastructure and Operations, which is responsible for designing new infrastructure management systems for the administration’s laboratory and production facilities. “The fellowship is a great opportunity for career development,” says Andrews. “I want to stay in the nuclear security field for the foreseeable future, and this program will help me learn firsthand about how the United States implements its nuclear security policies.” The NNSA Graduate Fellowship Program is a 12-month, full-time, salaried program that provides participants with specialized training and practical experience on projects and initiatives that contribute to a safer world.  The National Nuclear Security Administration is a semi-autonomous agency within the Department of Energy that manages a range of nuclear-related activities within the U.S. government, including the U.S. nulcear weapons complex.
