The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence & Security-sponsored Applied Research Laboratory for Intelligence and Security (ARLIS) at the University of Maryland, College Park, is now accepting applications for the 2023 Research for Intelligence & Security Challenges (RISC) internship program (May 30 – August 4) – https://www.arlis.umd.edu/risc2023_application.
Competitively-selected RISC interns (RISCers) work in teams with mentorship from university faculty and government practitioners, tackling real security and intelligence problems hands-on. Work is primarily conducted virtually, with some opportunities for in-person collaboration and in-person project outbriefs presented the final week. Internship participation includes possible sponsorship for a security clearance and brings the opportunity to be considered for future employment with the U.S. government.
Outstanding U.S. citizen undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply for this unique opportunity, particularly juniors, seniors, early grad students, and students from minority-serving institutions. The application site will close on Monday, February 6, 2023.
Want to learn more? We will host a series of RISC information sessions for interested students, including hearing from past RISCers. The first session will be held virtually on November 16th from 4:00-5:00 PM EST; additional details will be posted on the RISC 2023 page – https://www.arlis.umd.edu/risc.
