Internship Program

Interns are central to our work. They go on to do cool stuff too!

The Center frequently has internship opportunities, and it greatly values all of the important contributions our interns make – both at CTC and during other stages of their careers.

As a CTC intern, you will be given the opportunity to participate in the premier research that the center conducts, which is regularly briefed to leaders in the counterterrorism community at all levels of the United States Government. In addition to assisting in research projects, you will be invited to:

  • Participate in briefings to top policymakers and practitioners
  • Attend selected CTC courses taught to West Point cadets
  • Support other CTC programs and events

To learn more about our internship offerings and selection process please visit the Opportunities page of our site.

After their time at CTC, our interns also go on to work in cool places where they continue to make meaningful contributions that benefit and help to advance the counterterrorism, terrorism studies, and security studies fields.

A selection of those accomplishments, and a list of CTC interns who have helped the Center after the CTC formally started its Internship Program, are highlighted below.
