The DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) has enhanced its Fellows Program and is now accepting applications from state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) partners. 

The Fellows Program provides a unique opportunity for SLTT partners to collaborate with DHS, the Intelligence Community (IC), and the federal interagency to ensure that SLTT perspectives are integrated into the threat information shared by federal partners.   Fellows will be expected to collaborate with their federal counterparts and SLTT customers through participation in a variety of intelligence functions, including, but not limited to, intelligence collection, analysis, and production activities. Through these engagements, Fellows will collaborate with interagency partners to facilitate the sharing of information and intelligence across all levels of government.

Several distinct opportunities are available under this program and applicants may apply for more than one opportunity.  If more than one opportunity is identified, please rank order your preference. 

·         DHS Intelligence Enterprise:  Fellows will work alongside DHS Intelligence Enterprise staff to facilitate collaboration among DHS components and SLTT partners to promote an understanding of threats to the homeland; collect intelligence pertinent to homeland security; and share information that can inform operational and strategic actions.  DHS Intelligence Enterprise opportunities exist in the following entities:

o   Cyber Mission Center

o   Transnational Organized Crime Mission Center

o   Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative

·         Joint Counterterrorism Assessment Team (JCAT):  Fellows will be assigned from the DHS Counterterrorism Mission Center to the JCAT to work alongside analysts from NCTC, DHS, and the FBI to research, produce, and disseminate counterterrorism intelligence products.

·         National Gang Intelligence Center (NGIC):  Fellows will be assigned from the DHS Transnational Organized Crime (TOC) Mission Center to the NGIC to help enhance partnerships among DHS, the NGIC, and SLTT partners to integrate gang intelligence with a transnational nexus.
