Summer 2021 Internship, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (Washington, DC)


NGA views student employees as our future workforce; therefore, work assigned to students is professional in nature and is conducted in a learning environment that provides each student real-world experience and an opportunity to be evaluated for potential long-term employment. Student Internship assignments are open to associate, undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students and are based on entry-level professional job descriptions, which will involve a great deal of independent and team oriented work under the guidance of a supervisor and mentors.

Students who perform successfully and meet program requirements are invited to continue in the program for the duration of their degree programs, and may be granted the opportunity for conversion to permanent employment upon graduation.


To be eligible to participate in NGA’s Student Internship Program, applicants must meet the following requirements:

  1. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen, and at least 18 years of age.
  2. Applicants must be currently enrolled at least half-time in an accredited two-year or four-year college or university.
  3. Applicants must be enrolled in an associate, baccalaureate, graduate, or post-graduate degree program with coursework related to NGA’s mission (see the list of relevant degree programs in each Assignment Opportunity Notice).
  4. Applicants who apply to the Student Internship Program before completing their first semester of college will not be required to submit an academic transcript during the application period.
  5. Applicants who have completed a degree program, and are in the first semester of a subsequent degree program at the time of application (i.e. just started a graduate program after previously completing a bachelor’s) will be required to submit the final transcript from their previous degree program during the application provcess. If selected, their offers will be contingent upon receipt of an official transcript from their current degree program.
  6. All selectees will be required to submit an updated official transcript prior to June 30, 2020.
  7. Applicants must be able to obtain and retain a Top Secret security clearance with access to Sensitive Compartmented Information, or TS/SCI.
