The SHP Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative is an unpaid student volunteer program for college students pursuing a program of study in a cybersecurity-related field. Originally created in April 2013, the program expanded to new DHS offices and locations in 2014, with over 100 unpaid student volunteer assignments available in over 60 locations across the country. Participating offices and Components in the program include U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations computer forensics labs, the U.S. Secret Service, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Transportation Security Administration, the Office of Intelligence and Analysis, the DHS Office of the Chief Information Officer, and state and major urban area fusion centers. Student volunteers in the program gain invaluable hands-on experience and exposure to the work done by DHS cybersecurity professionals, and perform a broad range of duties in support of DHS’ cybersecurity mission. 
Various Opportunities:
The FBI has cancelled its cybersecurity internships: 

"For many years, the FBI has sponsored robust summer intern programs for high-achieving college students who are called to contribute to the FBI mission and our nation. In 2014, however, budgetary restrictions have affected the FBI's ability to staff the internship programs. As such, the FBI for 2014 has suspended the FBI Honors Internship Program, the FBI Volunteer Internship Program, and the Cyber Internship Program. Applications will not be accepted for these programs at this time. Should the situation change and internship positions become available, notification will be posted here."
