The application was posted on January 27 and will close on June 30, 2020: https://apply.intelligencecareers.gov/job-description/20200119 All students that are accepted into the internship would need to be able to obtain a top secret security clearance at NGA’s cost. Based on this requirement, they recruit for the internship program a year in advance. The clearance process is lengthy so they have to start very early in order for the students to be cleared in time to start the program.
NGA is a unique combination of intelligence agency and combat support agency. It is the world leader in timely, relevant, accurate and actionable geospatial intelligence (GEOINT). NGA works alongside other agencies like CIA, NSA and DIA to enable the U.S. intelligence community and the Department of Defense (DOD) to fulfill the president’s national security priorities to protect the nation. NGA also anticipates its partners’ future needs and advances the GEOINT discipline to meet them. They have a paid Student Internship Program that provides students with real work experience, access to brief leadership and other students within NGA and the Intelligence Community, and eventually the opportunity for conversion to full time employment.
