While many CITS programs are designed to impart the fundamentals of strategic trade management, the Export Control Fellows Program offers more advanced training to select individuals with extensive background in the fields of strategic trade and nonproliferation. With the support of the U.S. Department of Energy, the Export Control Fellows Program brings a small number of high-ranking professionals from other countries to train in Athens for two weeks during the summer. Previous participants have come from Asian countries while future iterations of the program will host professionals from Latin American countries. Participants also spend two weeks training at our partner institution, the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in Monterey, Calif., as well as several days interacting first-hand with practitioners in Washington, DC.

During their time in Athens and Monterey, participants design, execute, and present written research projects that are of value to them as individuals and to their parent institutions, while forming professional connections that strengthen regional efficiency in managing the trade of dual-use and strategic goods.
