The FBI National Executive Institute (FBI NEIA), an organization comprised of law enforcement professionals who are graduates of the FBI National Executive Institute, Quantico, Virginia, is offering to qualified Students (AGES 14 –16) who have demonstrated above average academic standards (3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale), as well as good citizenship, the opportunity to participate in an eight-day program of leadership development at the FBI Academy. Applicants must be a relative of an FBI NEIA member.

This exciting program is offered through the cooperation of the FBI, and the participant is selected and sponsored by the FBI NEIA, who will pay transportation and student sponsorship fees.

Further, the counselors and instructional staff for the program consist of National Academy graduates who are members of the FBINAA and select FBI Special Agent personnel. Guest lecturers in various professional disciplines also address the students.

Although the program is not limited to young persons interested in a future career in law enforcement, interested candidates should possess a desire to gain knowledge of the American system of criminal justice, as well as ethics, leadership skills and personal development.
