The Security of Our Country Begins with You

The Intelligence Community needs a wide range of perspectives to approach global challenges, and there are great opportunities for a new generation.

Kansas Consortium ICCAE Scholars

The Intelligence Community Center for Academic Excellence Scholars program assists undergraduate students in developing critical skills needed for future work in the intelligence community. ICCAE Scholars increase their critical thinking, analytic, and communication skills, which can be applied to any area of study or profession. Undergraduate students from KU, Dodge City Community College, Donnelly College, and Seward County Community College are eligible. Courses are taught online by a KU instructor and administered in person by a course facilitator at DCCC, Donnelly, or SCCC. 

Why Study Intelligence & National Security?

The US Intelligence Community employs people from diverse cultural backgrounds and with a variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees. Students who graduate aware of and prepared for intelligence careers enter the workforce with an edge over other applicants. From the military to government agencies and the nonprofit and corporate sectors, ICCAE Scholars increase their career potential in this dynamic field.
