DHS S&T Announces New Research Internship

The DHS program will cultivate diverse and highly skilled candidates that are workforce ready students.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) created the competition for graduate and undergraduate students across the United States to participate in the 2023 Homeland Security Professional Opportunities for the Student Workforce to Experience Research (HS-POWER) internship program.

Administered by S&T’s Office of University Programs, the DHS HS-POWER program, offers internships for students majoring in homeland security related sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines to build relevant work experiences within DHS and conduct relevant research. Interns work at DHS laboratories and offices nationwide and will have opportunities for professional networking to establish connections and build relationships with DHS professionals.

The goals of the program are to develop a diverse, talented pool of workforce-ready students, and to promote long-term relationships between students, researchers, DHS personnel and research facilities to diversify the DHS workforce.
