National Security Fellows
Cyber attacks. Pandemics. Hurricanes. Terrorism. Wildfires. Civil unrest. As threats to national security increasingly invade American lives, the need for professionals in every field with the knowledge and analytical skills to respond to these risks has never been greater.
Paired with your major, McDaniel’s new National Security Fellows Program prepares you to meet this need head on, giving you an edge in a surging market of high-paying jobs in private corporations, non-profit organizations, and government agencies alike.
Professionals like you, with expertise in national security, are in demand in accounting, cryptology, computer science, world languages, business, transportation, criminal justice, psychology, sociology, statistics or actuarial science, government, foreign service, and more.
Becoming a National Security Fellow
You’ll apply to join the program typically in the spring semester of your freshman or sophomore year (with exceptions made for exceptional juniors). Successful applicants will demonstrate a strong interest in the field of national security (broadly defined) and be committed to advancing educational and/or professional interests in this area. Students from all majors are encouraged to apply.
