2017 Summer Opportunities Still Available

(Contact our Office iccae@nsu.edu)


Originally established in 2006 with funds from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), the Norfolk State University (NSU) IC-CAE program was designed to specifically target underrepresented groups, specifically women and racial/ethnic minorities, with varied cultural backgrounds, regional and geographical expertise, language proficiency and related competencies. As a Historically Black College/University (HBCU) Norfolk State University is uniquely postured to meet these needs.  In 2009 NSU's IC-CAE program became a part of a unique consortium of four other HBCU's (Morgan, Bowie, Elizabeth City, Virginia Union) to start the Mid-Atlantic Consortium of Centers of Academic Excellence (www.maccae.org).

Norfolk State is especially well-positioned to get into intelligence studies because of its proximity to many major military bases, the headquarters of many intelligence agencies and other special operations training facilities.

This comprehensive program at Norfolk State University encompasses:

  • Scholarships for language & cultural immersion abroad
  • Summer internships and co-op opportunities within the intelligence community (IC)
  • Faculty and student research grants
  • Pre-college outreach program
  • Faculty and student mentorship
