The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sponsors a 10-week summer internship program for rising juniors and seniors majoring in homeland security related science, technology, engineering and mathematics (HS-STEM) disciplines. The DHS HS-STEM Summer Internship Program provides students with the opportunity to conduct research in DHS mission-relevant research areas at federal research facilities located across the country.
The areas of research and location of the sites are mostly outside of the Washington Metro area. Participating students are paid $5000 and transportation to the site is included. Students are expected to present the results of their research project in a poster or oral presentation at the hosting site. US Citizenship is required.
Please note that the application is fairly intensive, so you will want to start early. This is a nice opportunity for students to get science research experience!
Application Deadline: January 5 (application form) and January 12 (postmark deadline for supporting materials)
