The IC CAE’s main goal is to prepare students—by enhancing the critical skills and knowledge deemed essential by the Intelligence Community—for careers in national security and intelligence. In these fields, an international perspective is crucial for dealing with the variety of issues & challenges that often arise. For this reason, the IC CAE provides funding for study abroad programs for students who have the goal of working in intelligence and security fields. Scholarships will be available for most semesters.

This competitive scholarship awards up to $4,000 for undergraduate students and graduate research, with a priority for those who have a financial need. This scholarship is interdisciplinary and is open to many courses of study, as long as the course work reflects material that would be beneficial to a future in intelligence and national security.
