About the Boot Camp

The Institute for International Science and Technology Policy (IISTP) is proud to announce the GW Boot Camp on Nuclear Security Policy, an annual event on nuclear security policy issues.  The first Boot Camp was hosted in June 2018. Most students are Ph.D students at other universities such as University of Texas, UC Davis, Berkeley, and UNLV. This program is also open to students from non-affiliated universities. IISTP recommends that non-affiliated students should be pursuing/obtained a higher-ed degree (Master’s or Ph.D) and/or have a strong background in science and nuclear policy.

The Boot Camp will be about two-weeks long and provide for opportunities to network in Washington, D.C. with nuclear policy professionals. Students will attend lectures on a variety of nuclear security topics and visit several important sites related to nuclear security.
