BTI Fellows

The BTI Institute enlists the support of highly experienced and eminently qualified subject matter experts, over a wide spectrum of interests related to border security, trade, and immigration, in order to expand the Institute’s capabilities and capacity. Based on their expertise, BTI Fellows may be engaged to work on BTI Institute projects as needed. While it is not required that BTI Fellows possess or have possessed security clearances from the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, or other federal agencies, it is advantageous for BTI Fellows to possess the ability to access and work with sensitive and/or classified materials on a “need to know” basis.

Applicants for BTI Fellowships will provide their resume, documentation of security clearance (where applicable), and five professional references (name, title, work address, telephone number, and email address) to the BTI Institute’s Executive Director, Strategic Partnerships. New applicants for BTI Fellowships will be screened every six months by a review panel composed of members of the BTI Institute. Selected applicants will then be interviewed telephonically or by teleconference. Selectees will be flown to the BTI Institute for final interviews and orientation.
