CIA Undergraduate Scholarship Program
Although the CIA Undergraduate Scholar Program was developed to attract minority and disabled students, they will accept applications from all students who meet the requirements.
Those students selected will be given a 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. Students will be required to work for the CIA during summer breaks and to maintain full-time college status during the school year with a minimum cumulative 3.0/4.0 GPA.
The CIA requires that you agree to continue employment with them after you graduate from college for a period equal to 1.5 times the length of your college sponsorship.
Applicants must meet the following requirements:
• US citizenship
• 18 years of age by April 1 of your senior year
• 1500 SAT (1000 Math & Critical Reading, 500 Writing) or 21 ACT scores or higher (high school students)
• 3.0/4.0 scale high school or college GPA or higher
• Financial need as demonstrated by the household income ceiling up to $70,000 for a family of four, and $80,000 for a family of five or more
• Meet the same employment standards as permanent employees, successfully completing both security and medical processing
• Available to work in the Washington, DC area during your periods of employment
