Intelligence and National Security internship for grad students

INSA Research Internship for Graduate Students

The Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA) is accepting graduate student internship applications for the spring 2010 semester.  INSA is a premier outreach organization and thought leader for the greater intelligence community and is a fantastic opportunity for graduate students interested in careers in national security (armed security guards, etc), government contracting or intelligence to gain first hand experience with government and private industry leaders in this sector. In 2008, INSA hired an SIS graduate student for an unpaid internship and later promoted him to a paid intern and head policy researcher.

Interns will spend the majority of their time researching and assisting with projects. Interns will sit in on meetings and be actively involved in the development of white papers and research projects. Interns have the opportunity to be primary contributors to research and the drafting and editing processes of these projects.  Interns will also provide office and administrative support to the staff in preparation for membership and networking events.  In this program, interns will work closely with government and business leaders, providing a great opportunity to begin or expand a professional network within the greater intelligence community

INSA is Metro accessible, located directly above the Ballston Metro Station (Orange Line) located at 901 North Street, Suite 205, Arlington, VA, 22203.
