Welcome to the National Security Education Program

At NSEP, our primary mission is to develop a pipeline of foreign language and culture expertise for the U.S. federal government workforce.

What people are saying about us:

"NSEP award recipients bring unique and highly needed skills: academic excellence coupled with international exposure, varied experience and strong language capability... such hallmarks are valuable for ONI and the greater Intelligence Community."

Office of Naval Intelligence

"FEMA has had a very positive experience with NSEP. The award recipients bring a wide variety of cultural knowledge, experience, and skills along with a strong commitment to public service. Their work ethic and contributions have resulted in a growing interest for additional NSEP awardees throughout the agency."

Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS

"NSEP scholars acquire skills that prepare them to grow into exemplary analysts and have demonstrated the ability to effectively apply cultural knowledge, analytical thinking and linguistic skills to intelligence issues."
