Rieser Fellowship deadline extended to March 15, 2013
Applications for the Leonard M. Rieser Undergraduate Fellowships, offered by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, are due March 15, 2013.
Rieser Fellowships provide the successful undergraduate applicants with a one-time award of up to $4,000 to pursue projects that explore issues at the intersection of science, global security, and public policy, focusing on a significant aspect of nuclear security, climate stabilization, or biotechnology.

In addition to the monetary award, each Rieser Fellow will be eligible to submit the fellowship project results to be considered for publication on the Bulletin's website. The widely read article by 2011 Rieser Fellow Shahrzad Mohtadi on how climate change affected the turmoil in Syria was picked up by international media outlets last summer. Rieser Fellows and alumni will also be eligible to participate in the Bulletin's annual Doomsday Clock Symposium in Washington, DC, next November.
Any undergraduate student studying at a U.S. college or university is eligible to apply. The Rieser Committee’s decision will be announced later in the spring, following notification of all applicants.
