The INSS internship program affords students from across the United States to work on a variety of research topics, both regional and thematic. These include Western Hemisphere, East Asia, Middle East, National Security Reform, and Future Strategic Concepts.
The Institute offers a wide range of research activities that gives interns the opportunity to participate in real-time work, assist in research for publications, and work closely with a Senior Fellow who is a subject matter expert in his or her field. Interns may also have the opportunity to meet government officials, attend congressional hearings, or participate in symposia hosted by the National Defense University or the Institute.
Unless otherwise mentioned, all INSS internships are unpaid.
The INSS Internship Program runs concurrently with Semester Academic Programs.
