NSIN X-Force Fellowship (Summer 2023)
Applications for the Summer 2023 cohort open October 27, 2022, and will close at 11:59 p.m. ET on February 10, 2023.
The X-Force Fellowship is a summer internship program that provides undergraduate and graduate students and recent graduates a chance to serve their country by solving real-world national security problems in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Defense. The Fellowship is a full-time (40 hours per week), paid opportunity. Depending on COVID-19 and Department of Defense guidance, the 2023 fellowship may be in-person or virtual. Fellows will be notified if the fellowship will be completed in-person or virtually in early March 2023.
All X-Force Fellows will be paid for the duration of the 10-week internship. Additionally, certain projects may be provided a small budget for materials and other expenses related to the delivery of a solution to the project’s sponsor.
The X-Force Fellowship program is open to U.S. citizens at the undergraduate and graduate level. Fellows possess a diverse set of skills ranging from mobile and web app development, data analysis and visualization, hardware prototyping, social media strategy, and technology scouting. Fellows get the opportunity to work on a mission-focused real-world project, participate in a professional development opportunity, work directly with military and national security leaders, and gain perspective as to how their skills and experience can have an outsized impact on national security.
