Federation of American Scientists was awarded $10,586,000 between 1984 and 2017, including 25 grants in MacArthur Award for Creative & Effective Institutions.

$1,870,000

2017 • 3 years

The Federation of American Scientists (FAS) provides science-based analysis of and solutions to protect against catastrophic threats to national and international security. As part of its approach, FAS incorporates diverse sets of experts from younger career scientists and engineers to senior leaders in science, policy, intelligence community, and law. The purpose of providing general operating support is to allow FAS to continue its science-based analysis on important nuclear policy issues, including that related to weapons-useable nuclear material, as well as flexibility in responding to changes in the context of its work, as they arise.

$50,000

2017 • 3 months

Founded in 1945, the Federation of American Scientists works to reduce nuclear dangers and ultimately prevent global catastrophe. This project identifies critical barriers and potential incentives to disposing of weapons-useable plutonium. The primary intended outcome of this project is to surface best practices and immediate or near-term policy options on plutonium disposition.

$684,000

2015 • 2 years 7 months

The Federation of American Scientists (FAS) is a non-profit membership organization, with members from the academic, non-profit, and government communities, that works to provide science-based analysis of, and solutions to protect against, catastrophic threats to national and international security. The award provides support for several FAS projects that address nuclear security and nonproliferation, including task forces on highly enriched uranium use in naval propulsion, and implementation of aspects of the Iran deal. In addition to involving senior leaders in science, policy, and law in these task forces, FAS incorporates younger career scientists and engineers to expose them to the policy challenges presented by their fields and encourage their pursuit of work at the intersection of nuclear science and policy.

$200,000

2015 • 6 months

The Federation of American Scientists (FAS) works to provide science-based analysis of and solutions to protect against catastrophic threats to national and international security. The award extends FAS' highly successful project on the technical and policy dimensions required to adequately verify a nuclear agreement with Iran. The intended outcome is to support conclusion of a nuclear agreement with Iran by refining and developing the FAS recommendations, developed under the initial project, in which policymakers expressed significant interest.

$140,000

2014 • 1 year

To support a project on nuclear verification requirements for an agreement with Iran.

$145,000

2013 • 1 year 7 months

The Federation of American Scientists (FAS) works to provide science-based analysis of and solutions to protect against catastrophic threats to national and international security. Continued use of highly enriched uranium (HEU), a weapons-usable fissile material, raises the risks of diversion into nation states' weapons programs and acquisition by terrorists groups. While efforts are underway worldwide to minimize the use of HEU in civilian applications, some countries continue to use significant quantities of HEU in the naval sector. This project will assemble an FAS task force to analyze the challenges posed by HEU in the naval sector and seek solutions.
