The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) delivers world-class geospatial intelligence that provides a decisive advantage to policymakers, military service members, intelligence professionals, and first responders. Anyone who sails a U.S. ship flies a U.S. aircraft, makes national policy decisions, fights wars, locates targets, responds to natural disasters, or even navigates with a cellphone relies on NGA. They are seeking interns beginning in summer 2022. Interns perform a variety of functions and tasks in support of the organization to which they are assigned. Work assignments will involve problem identification, analysis, and resolution. Specific duties may include the preparation and presentation of briefings directly related to the work assigned. These assignments last for 12-months. Hires will work up to 20 hours per week and receive a salary, but no extra funding or stipends will be given for student housing.
The deadline to apply is September 30, 2021.
