WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) announced that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will be accepting applications for its 2019 Honors Internship Program. The 10-week program runs from June 10th to August 16th and is a great opportunity for students to work with special agents, intelligence analysts, and professional staff. Interns that participate in this paid internship gain valuable career experience and many use the program to springboard to an FBI career.

“Experiences like these during collegiate years are what shape lives and career paths,” said Congressman Cuellar. “Internship programs provide opportunities to network and gain leadership skills. I strongly encourage students who are interested in this field to take this opportunity to complement their education with hands-on experience.”
The program offers paid internship positions for students in Field Offices across the country as well as in the Headquarters divisions in and around Washington, D.C.

To qualify, applicants must:
• Have U.S. Citizenship;
• Attend a college or university full time as an undergraduate (freshman, sophomore, junior or senior), graduate or post-doctorate student. Students are not eligible if graduating before the program start date; exceptions are permitted to students continuing their education in the semester immediately following;
• Have and maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) or better at the time of application, throughout the application process, and the duration of the internship program; and
• Pass all of the FBI employment background investigation requirements and be able to receive a Top-Secret security clearance.
The application closes October 14, 2018. Interested students can apply online at:
