Summer Spies

By Ed O'Keefe

So what did you do on your summer vacation? Later this year, 30 "highly motivated graduate students and college seniors" will be able to say they spied for the U.S. government. Kind of.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence will soon recruit 30 co-eds for a two-week summer seminar from July 13-24 in Washington, D.C. The inaugural summer session includes lectures, field trips to agencies and a mock intelligence analysis based on the topic, "Political Instability – International Systems in Transition.”

Best part: The all-expenses paid experience (room, board, course materials) comes with a $1,000 stipend and a secret level security clearance during the two week session. (One can only imagine the potential pick up lines at D.C.-area bars this summer.)

The summer curriculum is being developed by the Philip Merrill Center for Strategic Studies of the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies of the Johns Hopkins University and by officials at the Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Analysis and the Office of the Intelligence Community Centers for Academic Excellence.

Interested applicants have until April 30 to apply and can do so by filling out the four-part application online.
