McCain Institute Announces Inaugural National Security Fellowship Class

McCain National Security and Counter-Terrorism Fellowship

In July 2019, the National Security College (NSC) announced its partnership with the McCain Institute, Arizona State University and our Distinguished Visitor Nick Rasmussen to deliver the McCain National security and Counter-Terrorism fellowship.

Designed and led by McCain Institute Senior Director Nicholas Rasmussen — director of the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) from 2014 – 2017 and former White House senior counterterrorism official under Presidents Bush and Obama — the fellowship brings together the most promising rising leaders engaged in national security and counterterrorism (CT) work in the Five Eyes partner nations to prepare selected participants for future leadership opportunities and build a professional network connecting them in a meaningful and enduring way.

The NSC is now proud to announce that the inaugural National Security Class has been selected, which includes three Australian women, one of which is an alumnus of the NSC. We congratulate the eleven successful applicants and wish them all the best in their work.

The NSC is excited to see this great program come to fruition. As proud partners of the McCain Institute and King’s College London we look forward to the shared benefits of such a crucial and valuable collaboration.
