Upcoming Application Deadlines
HNIP Applications are accepted in the fall, spring and summer at www.hnip.net. Oct. 3, 2008, is the early application deadline to be considered for a summer 2009 (June 5 – Aug. 15) federal internship that requires a security clearance (e.g., U.S. Department of State, Central Intelligence Agency, Federal Reserve Bank, and some agencies within U.S. Department of Defense) and for selected corporate  internships that may require an extensive interview process.  

Regular application deadlines are as follows:  Nov. 7, 2008 for spring 2009 (Jan. 15 – May 2); Feb. 27, 2009 for summer 2009; and June 19, 2009 for fall 2009 (Aug. 27 – Dec. 12). To accommodate students who attend institutions that operate on a quarter calendar basis, a later start date (June 22-Aug. 29) is available for the summer session. Application deadlines remain the same. Only students that attend quarter schools may participate during this later program session. 

About HNIP
