ANSER Concludes Successful Summer Internship Program

Falls Church, VA (September 7, 2016) 

This summer, the ANSER Internship Program brought graduate and undergraduate students to work on important issues related to national and homeland security.  ANSER sourced interns through the DHS-funded Homeland Security – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (HS-STEM) Internship Program and the University of Chicago Intern Program, as well as through its relationships with individual sponsors like Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Centers of Excellence, Rutgers University, Texas A&M University, and the Stevens Institute of Technology.

The ANSER Internship Program is a valuable tool in the development of the national and homeland security workforce of the future. The program provides interns with knowledge about the roles and responsibilities of the federal government in these mission areas, through the completion of individualized projects of interest to various government sponsors. It also helps them prepare for entry into the national and homeland security workforce after completing their college education. In return, the students bring a new, fresh perspective on issues facing the department today.

Former interns have gone on to pursue a variety of careers and interests, including leading the FEMAStat Program, pursuing doctorates in criminal justice and mathematics, joining the  U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, serving as a volunteer firefighter, working with the Salvation Army, and many have gone to positions within ANSER and the field of national and homeland security consulting.
