How to Apply
All recruiting for the PAQ program is done through college campus visits or virtual recruiting events. To apply for a special agent position through the PAQ Program, applicants must attend one of the events AFOSI participates in and talk with an AFOSI representative. Be prepared to provide a copy of your resume at that time. Once we confirm the locations, dates, and times for the college campus visits for the Fiscal Year 2020 program, we will post them below. That usually occurs in August.
The Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI) will participate in the Air Force Premier College Intern Program (PCIP). Students in their junior year of a full-time baccalaureate program or enrolled in a master’s program with a Spring 2021 completion date will be able to apply for a full-time, paid internship (GS-05) lasting 10-12 weeks during the summer of 2020.
PLEASE NOTE: The PCIP for 2019 is now closed.
Basic eligibility criteria for PCIP:
(1) Currently enrolled, and in good academic standing (minimum 2.95 cumulative GPA) in a full-time program, at a public or other non-profit institution of higher education; AND
(2) Making satisfactory progress toward receipt of a baccalaureate or master’s degree;
(3) Must be on schedule to complete bachelor’s/master’s degree NLT 30 Jun, the following year
- US Citizenship
- Possess a valid driver’s license
- Must pass rigorous background investigation
- Must be able to obtain and maintain a Secret security clearance.
OSI PCIP interns may be non-competitively converted to a permanent appointment within the PALACE Acquire (PAQ) program. The target grade of the conversion will be GL-07. However, it is important to remember that eligibility for conversion does not guarantee the applicant will be offered a permanent position and applicants must meet all the AFOSI PAQ eligibility requirements to be considered for conversion.

All recruiting for the PCIP is done through college campus visits or virtual options (like the PAQ program). To apply for the PCIP, applicants must attend one of the events AFOSI participates in and talk with an AFOSI representative. Be prepared to provide a copy of your resume at that time. The locations, dates and times for the college campus visits will be posted on this site in August/September. The campus visits usually occur in September and October.
A limited number of “virtual career fair” logons may also be available for the PCIP. Logging on to a virtual event in-lieu-of attending a campus event is limited to applicants who live at least 150 miles from a campus recruiting event. If the virtual event is full by the time an applicant attempts to reserve a logon, that applicant must travel and attend a campus event to apply for this position. The Web-based career fair (for PCIPs) will also be posted on this site once the date is confirmed.
