Cybersecurity Internships Available at the Department of Homeland Security

As part of the Secretary's Honors Program (SHP), the Department of Homeland Security is launching its Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative for college students. Through the program, more than 100 unpaid student volunteer assignments will be available to support the DHS' cyber mission at local DHS offices in over 60 locations across the country. 

Through the program, student volunteers will gain invaluable hands-on experience and exposure to the cybersecurity work performed by DHS cybersecurity professionals. The initiative is specifically designed for current college students pursuing a program of study in a cybersecurity-related field. Participants will perform a broad range of duties in support of the DHS' mission, om areas ranging from cyber threat analysis to digital forensics to network diagnostics and incident response. Student volunteers will begin in spring 2014 and participate throughout the summer. 

The SHP Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative is a highly competitive program created to attract top talent to DHS, and is part of the Department’s efforts to address recommendations from the Homeland Security Advisory Council’s Task Force on CyberSkills.  DHS also partners with other government agencies and the private sector on a variety of initiatives to support cyber education.
