Hood College students Eli Nicholson ’19 and Afton Woodring ’19 have been awarded scholarships from the National Security Scholars Program (NSSP), which provides a paid internship for the summer and unique opportunities in the national security field.
This program is focused on the needs of the intelligence and defense industry in Maryland and offers assistance with national security clearance processing and future employment in the field.
Nicholson is double majoring in mathematics and economics with a concentration in international economics and a minor in actuarial science. His internship will be with Northrop Grumman in their business management section, working on automating and speeding up routine processes while maintaining accuracy.
“I applied for this internship because I saw it as a great opportunity that was made available by going to Hood,” said Nicholson. “I look forward to exploring outside of my concentration and gaining real experience with the inner workings of a large company.”
