 Program Overview

The University of Texas (UT) at Austin's Intelligence Studies Project and the Texas National Security Network announce the Texas Intelligence Academy (TIA), an intensive academic program focused on intelligence and national security in Washington, D.C.

The TIA offers a competitively-chosen group of UT-System undergraduate students the opportunity to learn about U.S. intelligence through lectures by distinguished scholars and practitioners, moderated discussions, simulation exercises, and visits to intelligence-related sites and facilities in the Washington, D.C. area. 

Selected students are housed in the District of Columbia and study at the UT-System's Archer Center, one block from the White House. All travel, lodging, and program expenses for the TIA are provided by the Intelligence Studies Project and Texas National Security Network. 

Applicants must be enrolled as an undergraduate student at a UT-System institution, demonstrate a strong academic record and interest in public affairs, and hold U.S. citizenship. No academic credit is provided for completing the TIA.
