Wounded Warrior Internship Programs

Defense Intelligence Agency Wounded Warrior Internship Program


As the Executive Agent for the Intelligence Community Wounded Warrior Program (ICWWP), DIA is proud to offer internships to Wounded Warriors. DIA provides all source defense intelligence to prevent strategic surprise and deliver a decision advantage to warfighters, defense planners, and policymakers. This strong connection to the military and Service members creates a unique environment in which returning combat troops can apply their military skills.

DIA is dedicated to increasing collaboration and fostering greater IC interaction for the program, and the support of IC agencies and partners is vital to the program’s success. DIA is a proud to participate in this initiative and strongly encourages all interested candidates to contact the ICWWP representative from their respective medical treatment facilities.


DIA internships are win-win opportunities for recovering Service members and the U.S. Government; warriors build their resumes with valuable federal government work experience and develop additional job skills, while DIA benefits from the operational and military perspective of the warrior. Duty schedules for Service members are dependent on each individual’s treatment schedule. The schedules are flexible so as not to interfere with the Service member's medical treatment or adversely affect their well-being and recuperation. The average length of the temporary assignment is 3-6 months for an average of 20 hours per week. DIA does not pay a Service member's salary, as they are still considered on active duty and therefore paid by their respective service.
