The Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has posted vacancies for several summer internship programs for seniors graduating in 2017. These internships offer competitive pay and have an extremely high chance of turning into a permanent position after completing the internship.
The most relevant vacancy for most area studies/international relations students is 2017 Summer Internship Program—Intelligence Careers (Recent Graduates and Rising Seniors Only), vacancy number 108388-03. It is for careers in analysis, human intelligence, counterintelligence, and mission management.
For those students with additional skills, there are also internships in the following fields: science and technology; security; finance and acquisition; human services, office management and infrastructure; and information technology.
Many graduating seniors would be wary about something labeled as an internship rather than a permanent position. However, internships are one of the easiest ways into the intelligence community. On top of that, these are paid internships.
Do you or your students have innovative ideas that could benefit from seed money to test the ideas? If so, consider applying for an I-Corps Grant.
BYU is an I-Corps Site, a program funded by the National Science Foundation to promote technology commercialization using the I-Corps Curriculum, which is based on “customer development” and “lean launch” principles. NSF I-Corps Sites across the country give $1,000–3,000 grants to teams who validate business models and determine whether a given technology is worth commercializing.
