Security Center now accepting applications for 2019-20 Faculty Fellows

January 11, 2019

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – The Center for Security Research and Education (CSRE) is now accepting applications for its 2019-2020 Faculty Fellows Program. The program is open to any full-time Penn State faculty member wishing to address topics involving threats to homeland, national and global peace and security; the underlying causes of these threats; strategies and techniques for prevention and consequence management; and the effects of security measures on individual liberties, human rights, economic well-being, and culture. The deadline to apply is Feb. 1.

CSRE funding will support the fellow’s interdisciplinary research on a security-related topic. In addition, the fellow contributes to CSRE’s mission by helping design an event bringing a broad array of Penn State disciplines to bear on a significant challenge to national or global peace and security.

Visit the CSRE website to learn more about the Faculty Fellows Program and how to apply.

CSRE reflects Penn State’s commitment to focusing the full range of interdisciplinary academic endeavor on the threats facing our world today.

The center has two primary focus areas. First, because security challenges consistently have social, scientific, and technological dimensions, CSRE brings scholars from diverse disciplines together to pursue holistic, interdisciplinary research and solutions. Second, because public understanding enhances security, CSRE works with Penn State faculty and outside experts to educate policy-makers, the media, the public and Penn State students on the critical security issues of the day.
