Join students from across the country and lend your knowledge to national security in one of NSA's over 25 summer internship programs. The Cyber Summer Program (CSP) accepts students working towards their undergraduate and graduate degrees, majoring in computer science, engineering, mathematics, network security and information assurance.

The Cyber Summer Program (CSP) is the National Security Agency's (NSA) premier outreach effort to the very best undergraduate and graduate computer science, engineering, mathematics, network security and information assurance students in the country. Each summer we invite exceptional students to participate in a 12-week program where they work together, and in teams, directly with NSA technical professionals on mission-critical cyber-related problems.

The goals of the Cyber Summer Program are to:

- Introduce our country's future leaders in cyber-related fields to the Agency's mission and share with them the excitement of working on problems of national importance,
- Provide a deep understanding of the vital role that computer science, engineering, mathematics, network security and information assurance plays in enabling the Agency to tackle a diverse set of technical challenges,
- Encourage bright undergraduate computer science, engineering, mathematics, network security and information assurance majors to continue their studies and pursue careers in the cyber-related fields,
- Provide solutions to current operational problems.

The students participating in the program work on a broad range of problems involving applications of computer science and engineering. During the first weeks of the summer internship, they are broadly exposed to NSA's cyber mission through a variety of lectures, classes and tours. The students are presented with a set of current mission-driven problems and choose which problems they will focus on for the summer. The outstanding work accomplished by each student will be presented to Senior NSA leadership as well as documented in the CSP year-end report. Students learn and develop data analysis, network analysis and exploitation techniques, apply what they learn to obtain real-time solutions, and experience the excitement of success built on hard work and innovation. All the students find the work at NSA very exciting and challenging.

While the majority of positions available are at Ft Meade, MD, we have a few available positions at our sites in San Antonio, Texas and Augusta, GA. If you are interested in positions at either of those locations, please ensure you reflect that in your resume.
