Association of Former Intelligence Officers/AFIO Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarships

The type of institution attended is less important than the clarity that the course of study being undertaken leads to a career in the U.S. Intelligence Community. This includes law enforcement, foreign policy, intelligence analysis, counter-terrorism, homeland security, some foreign language mastery (Farsi, Tagalog, Pashto, Urdu, Mandarin, Arabic, Hindi, etc. -- NOT Spanish or French), and related disciplines. Applicants seeking funding for business, law or medical school are not eligible. Applicant must be a U.S. citizen studying at a U.S. Institution. Advanced knowledge and corroboration of claims of near-native performance in one of the mission-critical languages mentioned above puts applicants at top of consideration. Applicants going to online-only schools are acceptable, but only institutions that are on a nationally accredited list maintained by the U.S. Dept. of Education.
