The following page provides information about the Academy's internship program and where to search for career opportunities in disaster management and humanitarian assistance.
Each year, the Academy reinvests in its students by offering an open competitive paid internship program. This is a great incentive for some students to gain valuable hands-on experience with a local emergency management agency, state or federal agency, or non-governmental organization. Since the 2015-16 graduate cohort, selected students have interned for Miami Dade County's Office of Emergency Management, U.S. Southern Command, and FIU’s Department of Emergency Management. Starting in 2017, the program will expand and include internships with Broward County’s Emergency Management Division, American Red Cross, City of Miami Emergency Management, and the U.S. Coast Guard.
