INSA is often on the lookout for graduate students interested in broadening their knowledge of the intelligence and national security communities. Our interns work closely with our member-driven policy councils, gaining valuable exposure to both contemporary intelligence issues (at the unclassified level) and the key stakeholders pursuing them.

-Supporting development of white papers and other policy products, per guidance of the staff and policy council chairs
-Reporting on relevant symposiums and panel discussions hosted by local organizations
-Front desk responsibilities, including greeting guests and answering phones
-Other general administrative tasks as assigned

All applicants should be highly motivated and sincere in their desire to pursue a career in intelligence or national security. All applicants must be able to start in January 2021, though preference will be given to graduate students available to start in November or December 2020. Please indicate your start date in your application.
