IC WOUNDED WARRIOR INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The IC Wounded Warrior Internship Program is a unique IC initiative that aligns with the DoD'S Operation Warfighter program and the 17 IC agencies. ICWWP provides wounded, ill and injured active duty service members with meaningful work experiences intended to assist with their recuperation and transition into the workforce through internship opportunities within the IC.
ICWWP identifies and places wounded warriors in a variety of types of internships across the IC based on their military skill sets and interests. These skills are uniquely correlated to the broad range of career fields across the IC, allowing warriors to continue to serve their country.
IC internships provide recovering service members the opportunity to build their resumes with valuable Federal Government work experience, explore employment interests, and develop additional job skills.
In order to participate in an IC internship, you must:
• Be a wounded, ill or injured active duty service member, mobilized Reservist or National Guardsmen assigned to a military treatment facility.
• Receive approval from your chain of command.
• Successfully complete a security background investigation, counterintelligence-scope polygraph examination and drug screening. Please note that you and your immediate family members must be U.S. citizens; security clearances are not granted to individuals who are dual citizens.
• Have a desire to continue to serve the Nation, and match your interests and military skills to a career field.
• Whatever your field, there are opportunities around the world that will challenge you as you make substantial contributions to protecting our national security.
ICWWP hosts several annual outreach events for warriors to interact with participating agencies and learn about internships opportunities. Participating IC agencies may also host their own internship fairs and events to expand on their unique internship opportunities.
ICWWP is a voluntary program, which provides warriors with professional skills and experience that facilitates their transition from military to civilian workforce. ICWWP is always looking for ways to collaborate with agencies and treatment facilities to support warriors’ recovery.
