Of course the CIA stands for the "Central Intelligence Agency"!
This scholarship program was developed, in part, to assist minority and disabled students, but application is open to all students who meet the requirements.
The program offers unmatched experience. The winning applicants will complete work sessions during each summer break, increasing their knowledge and job responsibilities while assisting intelligence professionals and applying your academic skills.
Once selected, recipients will be given an annual salary; a benefits package that includes health insurance, life insurance, and retirement; and up to $18,000 per calendar year for tuition, mandatory fees, books and supplies. They will also be required to work at an Agency facility during summer breaks and to maintain full-time college status during the school year with a minimum cumulative 3.0/4.0 GPA.
This scholarship program will also pay the cost of transportation between the recipient's school and the Washington, DC area each summer and provide a housing allowance!
