Summer Days at NSA | Unbeatable Experience, Year-Round Salary

    Very few people can say they spent their summers changing the world. But you can offer your top seniors just that chance.

    The Stokes Educational Scholarship Program at the National Security Agency (NSA) is open to high school seniors planning to major in computer science or computer/electrical engineering.

    With the Stokes Program, they'll attend college full-time, then work during the summer at NSA, for a minimum of 12 weeks in areas related to their course of study. Best of all, when they graduate college, a position will be waiting for them at NSA.*

    Participants in the Stokes Program also receive:

    • Tuition and mandatory fees paid to the college of their choice
    • Year-round salary while attending college
    • Reimbursement for required textbooks (up to $1,500 per year)
    • Housing and travel entitlements during summer employment (if the distance between NSA and the school exceeds 75 miles)
    • Paid time off
    • Health and life insurance
    • Federal retirement plans
