The Intelligence and National Security Foundation (INSF) is now accepting applications for its 2022 undergraduate and master’s scholarship program. The five awards of $5,000 each will support mission-driven students pursuing studies related to a career in the U.S. intelligence and national security community.
Interested students must complete an application form, which includes a brief essay and two academic references. A single, common application gives students an easy way to apply for multiple awards. Recipients will be selected based on academic standing and their stated commitment to the U.S. national security mission.
