The Cleveland FBI is looking for some high school students to take part in their Future Agents In Training Academy.  The four day program is for students 16 to 18 years old. The program is set to begin on Jun 19, 2018. 

The application process for the academy is now open. Students who are selected will take part in both classroom and hands on activities. Last year, 300 students competed for 45 spots to get a look at the workings of Cleveland's FBI Headquarters. 

"They learn about online safety, domestic terrorism, public corruption, evidence," said FBI Special Agent Vicki Anderson. "They learn what the FBI is all about," added Anderson.

This is the fourth year for the program. The application process is open until January 31, 2018. Applications will only be accepted by mail and must be postmarked by January 31, 2018. All students will be notified by April 15, 2018 of their status.
