The FBI Honors Internship Program is a 10-week, paid internship for college undergraduate
and graduate students. While exploring our exciting career options, students work
side-by-side with FBI employees at our Washington, D.C.-area Headquarters or in Field
Offices around the country. Open to a wide range of academic areas, this internship
offers experiences students can’t find elsewhere.
Attend a college or university full time as an undergraduate (sophomore, junior or
senior), graduate or post-doctoral student. Students are not eligible if they will
graduate before the program start date; exceptions are permitted to students continuing
their education in the semester immediately following.
Have and maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) or better at the time
of application, throughout the application process and for the duration of the internship
A student attending a school that does not provide a GPA will need to meet alternate
criteria. Instead of a 3.0 GPA or higher, the applicant must have maintained at least
a 3.0 high school GPA and have scored a 1500 out of 2400 on the SAT (1000 out of 1600
on new SATs) or scored a 21 or higher on the ACT.
Pass all of the FBI employment background investigation requirements and be able to
receive a Top Secret Clearance.
