Support the 2015 NFSTC ROTC Internship

Shooting a fingerprint on a phoneEach year since 2009, NFSTC has offered a rigorous, two-week, one-of-a-kind Biometrics and Forensic Internship for 12 ROTC Cadets from around the country. NFSTC has been committed to this program as it truly complements our work and because of this, NFSTC has provided this amazing opportunity at no charge to ROTC cadets or the Command. Since we started, more than 70 Cadets have been to NFSTC and learned skills, tools and techniques that will make them stronger leaders in our nation’s security forces.

This year we have launched a campaign to allow companies and individuals to support this program through sponsorship and donations. Your support will show your commitment to educating future Army leaders through a unique internship experience they do not receive in college and or basic ROTC training.
