Raytheon Fellowship Program

 

The core goal of this Workforce Development Program is to support Raytheon with the identification and cultivation of a pipeline of clearable U.S. citizens interested in cyber security and machine learning. Selected students will attend bi-weekly lectures, participate in seminars, and complete a project-based curriculum on topics related to cyber security and machine learning to prepare them for guaranteed internships at Raytheon in summer 2023.  All students in the program will receive a research stipend and will work on the program for 8-12 hours per week during the academic year. Contingent on performance throughout the academic year and internship, you may be offered a full-time position and start your security clearance as part of this program.
