Accomplished political scientist Stephen “Steve” Shellman leads Strategic Analysis Enterprises, Inc., as the statistical analytics and data collection firm’s president and chief executive officer. In the past, Steve Shellman has also used his expertise on behalf of other organizations, including the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD).

In pursuit of its mission to fight the beliefs that contribute to terrorism and defend democratic values, FDD oversees a variety of programs and activities focused on foreign policy and national security. For the last four years, the organization has sponsored the National Security Fellows Program, which brings together accomplished young professionals for 12 months of mentorship and collaboration.

In addition to meetings with top government officials, Fellows have the opportunity to take part in roundtable discussions with national security experts and attend a skill building session focused on strategic communications. After they have completed the 12-month program, Fellows can stay current on national security issues through special alumni programming that includes private briefings and VIP events.
