The X-Force Fellowship is a summer internship program that provides undergraduate and graduate students and recent graduates a chance to serve their country by solving real-world national security problems in collaboration with the U.S. military.

The X-Force Fellowship program is open to U.S. citizens at the undergraduate and graduate level. Fellows possess a diverse set of skills ranging from mobile and web app development, data analysis and visualization, hardware prototyping, social media strategy, and technology scouting. Fellows get the opportunity to work on a mission-focused real-world project, participate in a professional development opportunity, work directly with military and national security leaders, and gain perspective as to how their skills and experience can have an outsized impact on national security.

Fellows are matched with a problem and military sponsor based on skill set, educational background, and interview feedback. Each problem will have a team of 2-3 fellows with complementary skill sets to ensure the creation of innovative and effective solutions.

The Fellowship is a full-time (40 hours per week), paid opportunity. Depending on COVID-19 and Department of Defense guidance, the 2022 fellowship may be in-person or virtual. Fellows will be notified if the fellowship will be completed in person or virtually in early March 2022.

The application deadline is December 17th, 2021
