Students selected to participate will spend the summer working alongside acquisition workforce professionals at agencies such as Missile Defense Agency, Defense Contract Audit AgencyNaval Sea Systems Command and Defense Contract Management Agency in multiple locations across the U.S. During the internship, students will receive hands-on practical experience in analysis, research, report-writing, oral briefings, policy development, program analysis and acquisition-specific computer applications.
