FIVE EYES ACADEMIC CONSORTIUM
Since World War II, the Five Eyes intelligence alliance has served an important role in advancing the national security of member states. The Five Eyes Academic Consortium seeks to build upon these existing security relations through academic exchange. More critically, the Consortium looks to expand beyond the intelligence community to include diplomats, current or former military, local law enforcement, and even emergency medical technicians. Consortium members benefit through educational and teaching opportunities, research projects, and policymaking expertise.
"Building bridges between practitioners and academics."
Practitioners and government agencies associated with the Five Eyes Academic Consortium receive tuition discounts and benefits. Each academic institution affiliated with the consortium offers their own unique discount rate and curriculum.
Fellowships & Teaching
Members of the Five Eyes Academic Consortium exchange faculty members and instructors to create unique learning opportunities. Practitioners and policymakers are also awarded fellowships to conduct national security seminars at member institutions.
The Academic Consortium offers an invaluable network of academics and practitioners to engage in collaborative research projects. Members may work together to analyze critical national security issues, share data resources, and leverage financial resources.
A primary objective of the Five Eyes Academic Consortium is the establishment of a physical or virtual think tank. The think tank would serve as a central hub of intellectual activity, pursue large-scale research projects supported by external funding sources, and even offer young students internship opportunities.
Government agencies affiliated with the Five Eyes Academic Consortium may hire academic scholars and researchers to assist in formulating public policy. Policy assignments may be on a temporary or contractual basis.
