Internship Opportunities

Are you a college student, graduate or post-grad who is passionate about national security and helping to enhance public safety?  Are you looking for a meaningful, exciting and challenging internship that will make a difference in how the public understands today’s threats? Then we want to hear from you!  

Participating in a CELL internship is a great way to gain professional experience in both the national security and museum fields, practice specialized skills and learn from mentors with a variety of backgrounds. CELL interns play a critical role in the operations and development of CELL programs, events and offerings. Internship opportunities are available in the fall, spring and summer, depending on department need. 

Past interns have gone on to pursue careers in academics, public service and government agencies, including the Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  

Most CELL internships are open to anyone currently pursuing their post-secondary pathway, including undergraduates, graduate students and persons seeking a professional certificate or an associate degree. We encourage applicants from all backgrounds and perspectives who are interested in working for a mission-driven nonprofit committed to education and access.   

Paid CELL internships are available; we also offer academic credit. The CELL works with interns to complete all necessary forms to receive credit, but interns are responsible for making all appropriate arrangements with their schools.
