Undergraduate Internship Program- Support Integration Officer
Our year-round internship programs allow undergraduate students to work in several areas before they graduate. These paid opportunities span a range of studies, including, but not limited to:
- Foreign language
- Information technology
Schools with co-operative programs typically have specific requirements to receive co-op credit. So, we designed our co-op program at the CIA to help students meet those requirements. As part of our program, students work on an alternating semester basis for at least three semesters before they graduate. This can include a summer work session as well. Since our Agency does not work with an established list of co-op programs, students will need to work with their schools to receive academic credit.
Students have to go through our medical and security process. Interested in our internship or co-op programs? For most of these opportunities, please apply at least 12 months before your desired start date. If you are applying for the Directorate of Operations Internship or our scholarship programs, you will need to submit your application during the timetable listed on the program's page.
