FBI Honors Internship Program

Each summer, a special group of outstanding undergraduate and graduate students are selected to participate in the FBI Honors Internship Program in Washington, D.C., or at a Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory (RCFL) located throughout the U.S.

Sponsor: Federal Bureau of Investigation


The FBI Honors Internship Program offers undergraduate and graduate school students an exciting insider's view of FBI operations and provides an opportunity to explore the many career opportunities within the Bureau. The Honors Internship Program brings students to work at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.. FBI Honors Interns can look forward to ten extremely rewarding and interesting weeks. You'll be working side-by-side with Special Agents and Professional Staff personnel on important cases and management issues. You'll feel like you're a part of the Bureau...because you are.

Honors Interns are assigned to an FBI Headquarters division based on their academic discipline, potential contribution to the division, and the needs of the FBI. For instance, Honors Interns whose discipline is in the physical sciences may be assigned to the FBI's Laboratory Division in nearby Quantico, Virginia. Honors Interns whose discipline is in information technology may be assigned to the FBI's Cyber Division or one of the FBI's IT divisions. All Honors Interns are under the supervision of the head (i.e., Assistant Director) of their assigned division.
