Training Future Generations of International Experts
Since its founding by Herbert F. York in 1983, IGCC has devoted the majority of its resources to educating the next generation of international problem-solvers and peacemakers. It has provided support for student research through a dissertation fellowship competition, which has, over the years, provided more than 470 fellowships to UC graduate students. Internships in Washington, D.C. have exposed young scholars to the policy world, shaping later education and career decisions. And IGCC’s premier training programs and workshops bring students together with leading researchers and scholars from the University of California system and other leading universities, the Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories, as well as policy officials and operational specialists from government agencies and industry.
Current traning programs are closely tied to the IGCC research agenda in the areas of science and technology policy: conflict, governance, and development; and the spread of conventional and nonconventional security threats.
