The INSS internship program affords students from across the United States the opportunity to work with leading voices in national security scholarship on a variety of research topics, both regional and thematic. These include Future Strategic Concepts and Technologies, Eurasia, Western Hemisphere, East Asia, Middle East, National Security Reform, and Energy Security.
The Institute offers a wide range of research activities that gives interns the opportunity to participate in real-time work for the Department of Defense, 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.
