CyberWATCH Internship Program
Welcome to the CyberWATCH Internship Program information and application page!
CyberWATCH is a consortium of Washington , D.C. , Maryland and Virginia institutions led by Prince Georges Community College and funded by National Science Foundation (NSF) to expand the number of technicians and professionals with requisite skills in cybersecurity, and to improve the quality and increase the awareness of cybersecurity and information assurance in the education and business community.
What is the CyberWATCH Internship Program?
The CyberWATCH internship program provides CyberWATCH students with training opportunities and real-world experience in the areas of cybersecurity and information assurance. A variety of summer internship opportunities are offered along with job-readiness skills training. CyberWATCH partners with local businesses and IT professionals to give CyberWATCH students a unique opportunity to learn valuable skills and job experience to explore an industry they hope to move into. Internships may also lead to future job prospects. CyberWATCH students are matched with local businesses based on their interests, academic experience and skill levels.
The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) will facilitate the internship program. The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) is a voluntary association of the area's twenty local governments, working cooperatively to solve mutual problems that are regional in scope and not confined by political or geographic boundaries.
