N&NC VSIP provides students exposure to NORAD and USNORTHCOM missions and responsibilities, while working alongside current military and civilian professionals dedicated to the defense of North America.
Participants in N&NC VSIP gain valuable hands-on experience related to their education endeavors while working in a joint, interagency and international environment at NORAD and USNORTHCOM. Students may potentially earn academic credit for the work performed and those that qualify may receive a Department of Defense SECRET clearance.
