The National Security Agency (NSA) offers internships, scholarships, a co-op program, and other programs for students of all academic levels. The Graduate Mathematics Program (GMP) is a summer program for students currently enrolled in a graduate program. Exceptional mathematics and statistics graduate students work directly with mathematicians and statisticians on mission-critical problems and experience the excitement of the NSA technical community firsthand. Students will work on a wide range of problems involving mathematics, statistics, data science, cryptology, and communications technology and document their work in internally published technical papers. Students will have access to state-of-the-art computing resources and software packages such as Python, R, Sage, Magma, MATLAB and others. The GMP is a 12-week paid work assignment that runs from mid-May or June. Students are paid a salary commensurate with their education level. Annual leave, sick leave, and paid federal holidays are included, as is participation in an agency-wide extracurricular program. Students who attend schools in excess of 75 miles from Ft. Meade, Maryland, are eligible for a round trip airfare ticket to and from school or mileage reimbursement up to the cost of a government-issued airline ticket. Subsidized housing accommodations are available upon request if school is located in excess of 75 miles from NSA main HQs campus. Daily transportation to and from work is not provided; students are highly encouraged to bring a vehicle.
