The Summer Language Program is a 12-week internship intended for high-potential full-time college upperclassmen and graduate students. Foreign language proficiency combined with a wide array of majors and minors will be considered for this program, which can be a one-summer or two-summer internship. The program may begin after your sophomore year, and if mutually agreeable, continue the summer after your junior year. Likewise, the program may begin the summer after your junior year and continue the summer between your senior year and your first year of graduate school. The program may also take place in the summers between years of graduate study.
Participation during a second summer is encouraged but not required. At the end of your internship, an offer may be extended for you to join NSA in a full-time position after graduation.
The deadline to apply is October 31, 2021.
The 2022 Summer Language Program is hiring students with proficiency in Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, Korean, and Russian. Individuals with skills in less common languages are also encouraged to apply as the languages may change from year to year based on the Agency’s projected hiring needs. The Summer Language Program includes language mentors assigned from NSA’s language analysis team, hands-on operational experience, relevant job-specific briefings, job-specific training, and customized language training.
