In 2011, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) established the Nuclear Science and Security Consortium (NSSC), a five-year program to develop a new generation of laboratory-integrated nuclear experts. Since then, the NSSC has trained almost 400 students and postdoctoral scholars through a multidisciplinary program that provides hands-on training in nuclear science, technology, and policy. In 2016, the NNSA announced an additional grant award of $25 million to a new consortium of eight universities to continue research and development in nuclear science and security through the NSSC. The NSSC enables a rich collaborative research environment between universities and the national laboratories, and fosters the development of science and technology underlying the nuclear security mission.
