The FBI is accepting applications for its 2014 Honors Internship Program between January 29th and February 4th, 2014 (the window of opportunity is very narrow). The 10-week program will run between June 1 and August 9 and is a valuable opportunity for college students to work alongside special agents, intelligence analysts, and professional staff while gaining valuable career experience. Many interns use this program as a springboard to an FBI career, just as I did.
Students can apply online at www.fbijobs.gov.
The program offers 200 paid internships for students to work in select Field Offices across the country and in Headquarters divisions in and around DC. Interns will be compensated at the GS-2 to GS-7 hourly rates based on their level of education.
To qualify, applicants must:
- Be a U.S. citizen;
- Possess a GPA of 3.0 or higher;
- Be an undergrad, graduate, or post-doctorate student who will not graduate prior to June 1;
- Be able to pass an FBI background investigation and receive a Top Secret security clearance.
