Impact the Future of National Security

The NNSS Student Programs offers full-time, paid summer internships, with some internships continuing into the schoolyear on a part-time schedule. All internships are designed to engage students in a hands-on, meaningful, paid experience – all while applying classroom theories to the professional environment in support of the NNSS mission.

At the end of the summer, the work environment and the overall experience will have provided you with a better view of what your future career could look like. You will also have widened your career path options while shaping the future of the NNSS.
