In 2020, UNO joined the National Security Innovation Network (NSIN) and U.S. Department of Defense in providing a career and research pipeline opportunity for students.
The NSIN is currently recruiting for its X-Force Fellowship program 2021 Summer cohort.
The X-Force Fellowship program is an opportunity for technologists and entrepreneurs to serve their country by solving real-world national security problems in collaboration with the United States military.
This program strives to find the best and brightest students in the country to work on some of the most challenging national security problems.
At its core, the NSIN X-Force Fellowship program matches highly talented undergraduate and graduate students with operational military commands to deliver rapid, early-stage prototypes that help solve project sponsor problems.
The X-Force Fellowship program offers two paths to service: a full-time, in-person, paid option, and a part-time, remote, unpaid option. The X-Force Fellowship runs from early June to mid-August.
Interested students can also find out more about the fellowship on the NSIN Handshake channel.
The application deadline was February 1, 2021.
