FLETC College Intern (Winter/Spring 2013)
Application accepted: September 10, 2012 - September 28, 2012
The FLETC College Intern program provides a unique opportunity for college students majoring in Criminal Justice, Criminology, or a related field of study from across the country, to participate in a Federal Law Enforcement training environment. Each year, three intern sessions lasting twelve (12) weeks, are conducted at the FLETC, exposing selected interns to world-class training, broadening their horizons and helping to develop a foundation for a career in federal law enforcement.

Interns, after being selected to participate in the highly selective program, are assigned to a mentor from one of the FLETC’s training divisions or partner organizations. During their stay at FLETC, college interns spend approximately fifty-percent of their time completing worthwhile work to advance the mission of FLETC and the remaining fifty-percent, attending basic and advanced training courses. The FLETC College Intern Program stresses flexibility and creativity by encouraging interns to experience everything FLETC has to offer to further their education and career goals, while making professional contacts.
