If you are a high school senior planning to enroll in a 4-or 5-year college program, or you are a college freshman or sophomore enrolled in a 4-or 5-year college program, who is looking for career experience in a dynamic environment, apply to the CIA's Undergraduate Scholar Program and contribute to the work of the nation before you graduate.
The Opportunity to Make a Difference
The Undergraduate Scholar Program was developed, in part, to assist minority and disabled students, but application is open to all students who meet the requirements. The program offers unmatched experience. You'll complete work sessions during each summer break, increasing your knowledge and job responsibilities while assisting intelligence professionals and applying your academic skills.
We believe in challenging our Scholars with meaningful work that relates to their college major. An IT major, for example, might be given increasingly complex projects involving sophisticated computer systems. An engineering major might help produce a piece of state-of-the-art equipment. A finance major could be involved in developing and analyzing budgets for a worldwide operation. A foreign language major might be instrumental in translating documents for US policymakers. As a final example, a human resource major could have the opportunity to develop and implement personnel policies and procedures.
Once selected, you will be given an annual salary; a benefits package that includes health insurance, life insurance, and retirement; and up to $18,000 per calendar year for tuition, mandatory fees, books and supplies. You'll be required to work at an Agency facility during summer breaks and to maintain full-time college status during the school year with a minimum cumulative 3.0/4.0 GPA. We will pay the cost of transportation between school and the Washington, DC area each summer and provide a housing allowance.
Because the Scholar Program is an investment in you, accepting an offer means making a career choice. We ask that you agree to continue employment with the Agency after college graduation for a period equal to 1.5 times the length of your college sponsorship.
The Scholar Program is extremely competitive. We ask that all applicants meet the following requirements:

The Morehead-Cain experience is an undergraduate educational opportunity like no other. First, there are the tangibles.
The Morehead-Cain is a four-year merit scholarship to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It promises:
Support for your life at Carolina
Support for your life across the world
But the Morehead-Cain is more than that. It’s also a close-knit community of doers, thinkers, dreamers, and adventurers. In this community you’ll find motivated, smart, funny, interesting peers, as well as accomplished and eager mentors: the Morehead-Cain Alumni.
Yes, our alumni—nearly 3,000 of them—are the secret sauce of the Morehead-Cain.
Their experiences and advice will help you navigate the world beyond campus. It’s the closest you’ll ever get to having a crystal ball.
Through our online alumni directory, scholars are encouraged to reach out for advice on internships, graduate programs, travel, and just about anything else that might come up (within reason).
Our alums have interests as diverse as yours, if you can believe it, and they’re more than happy to help.
A lot less formal and a lot more interesting than it sounds. Throughout the semester, we’ll schedule lunches, coffee hours, and the occasional food-free chat with visiting alums. See who dropped by last year.
Each semester, we assemble a group of accomplished alumni to tackle a particular issue: education reform, say, or sustainable design. They’ll gather on campus for two days, holding a discussion panel and office hours with individual students.
Check out last year’s panels and topics. The next Alumni-in-Residence Program is scheduled for November 6–7, 2014, and will focus on renewable and conventional energy.
Every three years, several hundred of our alums return to campus for a long weekend of catching up with one another and meeting scholars.
We’ll hold discussion panels, share meals, offer student and alumni performances—it’s like an intellectual cruise that never leaves shore. The next one will be held October 16–18, 2015, on campus here in Chapel Hill.

We provide these young leaders with exceptional benefits and a distinctive set of shared experiences:
During this journey, Robertson Scholars learn to create change, foster collaboration, turn their passions into action, and have a palpable impact in their communities. The experience of being a Robertson Scholar helps students become thoughtful, creative, lifelong contributors to society — the kind of citizens and leaders prepared to meet the unprecedented challenges of our interdependent world.
