Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Scholarship Programs 2023

Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) offer financial needs-based scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students. In addition to a year-round salary, scholarship recipients will get up to $25,000 in tuition assistance per calendar year. All recipients must be either entering or attending an accredited university.


  • Undergraduate students must work at least one, and preferably two, 90-day session(s) at CIA before graduating
  • Graduate students must work at least one 90-day tour at CIA before graduating
  • After graduation, all scholarship recipients must work at CIA for a period of 1.5 years per year of paid scholarship received

Undergraduate Programs

Their year-round internship programs allow undergraduate students to work in several areas before they graduate. These paid opportunities span a range of studies, including, but not limited to:

  • Finance
  • Economics
  • Foreign language
  • Engineering
  • Information technology

Schools with co-operative programs typically have specific requirements to receive co-op credit. So, they designed their co-op program at the CIA to help students meet those requirements. As part of their program, students work on an alternating semester basis for at least three semesters before they graduate. This can include a summer work session as well. Since their Agency does not work with an established list of co-op programs, students will need to work with their schools to receive academic credit.

Graduate Programs

Their Graduate Studies Program is available to full-time students in accredited graduate or doctoral programs. As part of their program, students complete at least one 90-day tour before graduating. This program is an exciting opportunity for graduate students to gain real-world work experience. It is also an excellent opportunity for graduates to transition from academic life to a career in national service.
