community, and offer the potential opportunity to be considered for future
employment with the US government, to include possible sponsorship for a
security clearance.

Students will be introduced to career opportunities with the DoD and IC as
well as develop their technical capabilities through hands-on real-world
problems across a range of disciplines.  Project topics will be posed by
government operators, and supported with realistic data sets and other

While specific topics are in development, the missions supported are likely
to include augmenting intelligence analysis with machines, geospatial
analysis and human geography, disinformation, insider risk, and critical
technology protection. The RISC Initiative is particularly seeking interns
