Global Security Studies Internships

In partnership with the Foreign Military Studies Office (FMSO) at Fort Leavenworth, these internships allow select KU graduate students in fields like Political Science, History and Geography to work with analysts at FMSO on publishable research projects in global security.

To be eligible for a FMSO-CREES GRA, KU students must be in good academic standing and making satisfactory progress toward a graduate degree. They must also possess advanced foreign language skills in their target area of research.
