Proof of citizenship will be required upon award. Please be advised, if family members are not U.S. citizens, some agencies may be unable to process the participant for the appropriate security clearance. Every effort will be made to assign eligible students to DoD organizations without such restrictions but alternative placement is not guaranteed. Failure to obtain and maintain a security clearance is grounds for dismissal from the SMART Program. Applicants must be a citizen of the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, or United Kingdom at time of application.
Applicants will be subject to an employment suitability determination. Suitability is defined as identifiable character traits and conduct sufficient to determine whether an individual is likely or not likely to be able to carry out the duties of a Federal job with appropriate integrity, efficiency, and effectiveness.
