WASHINGTON — Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX28) announced that the Department of Homeland Security is offering semester long internships in its cybersecurity division for current college students.
“I want to make sure that college students in Texas are aware of this exciting opportunity to gain valuable work experience and keep our country safe through service with a top government agency,” said Congressman Cuellar. “In today’s economy, students must ensure they explore experience both inside and outside of the classroom to succeed in the workforce. I encourage college students to take advantage of this opportunity with the Department of Homeland Security.”
The Department of Homeland Security is offering 100 unpaid student volunteer assignments at field offices across the country. Interns will support cyber security operations at DHS's forensic labs. Internship opportunities are available in Austin, Dallas, Houston, El Paso, and San Antonio, as well as other locations across the country.
The deadline for application is January 3, 2014. Interns will begin in Spring 2014 and participate throughout the summer. Learn more about the program here and begin your application here.
