The Applied Research Laboratory for Intelligence and Security (ARLIS) at the University of Maryland, College Park, is now accepting applications for the 2022 Research for Intelligence & Security Challenges (RISC) Initiative internship program (May 30--August 4). 

Competitively-selected RISC interns ( RISCers) work in teams with mentorship from university faculty and government practitioners, tackling real security and intelligence problems hands-on. Work is primarily conducted virtually, with some opportunities for in-person collaboration and in-person project outbriefs presented the final week. Internship participation includes possible sponsorship for a security clearance and brings the opportunity to be considered for future employment with the U.S. government. 

Please distribute the attached student solicitation to outstanding U.S. citizen undergraduate and graduate students and encourage them to apply for this unique opportunity. The application site will close on Monday, February 6th, 2023

Want to learn more? We will host a series of RISC information sessions for interested students, including hearing from past RISCers. The first session will be held virtually on November 16th from 4:00-5:00 PM EST; additional details will be posted on the RISC 2023 page.


Thanks for spreading the word!
