The Premier College Intern Program (PCIP) is a 10-12 week paid summer internship traditionally accomplished the summer before entering your senior year. You will intern during the summer then return to school to finish your degree. Upon successful completion of the program and if you feel Air Force Civilian Service (AFCS) is a good fit for your career, you will have the opportunity to be non-competitively converted into the PAQ or COP recent graduate program. You must be enrolled full-time with at least 60 credit hours from a non-profit institution.
The PAQ or COP are our recent graduate programs. COP is designated for our Contracting career field, while PAQ is for all of our other participating career fields. This is a two to three year developmental program designed for recent graduates (must have obtained degree within two years before program start date, six years if veteran). The programs are designed to shape and develop the next generation of Air Force and Space Force Civilian leaders. Both programs have the same basic requirements: must be a U.S. citizen and have a cumulative GPA of 2.95 or higher
