Internships can be a key to obtaining any successful career- and the fields of intelligence and national security are no exception. However, often these are unpaid which can prevent many from taking advantage of them. The IC CAE will be offering an Internship Support Award for those taking on internships in intelligence and national security. Awards will support students doing unpaid internships or who may need assistance with transportation or other costs.

Awards are expected to be up to $3,000 and will be awarded competitively to undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in these areas and have a financial need. The scholarship is open to many different fields and courses of study, but the student’s intended internship and duties there should enhance their knowledge and skills in areas that are beneficial to a career in intelligence and national security. For a list of degrees and skills that are in critical need for the intelligence community please visit: www.intelligencecareers.gov/

Eligible for this award are:
  • Unpaid federal or state government internships related to intelligence and national security (ie Federal or State agencies, relevant committees, etc.)
  • Unpaid internships by non-profit entities engaged in work related to intelligence and national security.
  • Paid internships similar to the above in high-cost areas (based on financial need)

 

The deadline to apply for this award is EXTENDED TO WEDNESDAY APRIL 15th, 2020.
