According to a news release issued from the agency's Albuquerque office, the deadline to apply is July 7.
The FBI Teen Academy allows participants an opportunity to have a look at the inner workings of the FBI.
FBI special agents and support personnel will provide "lively" presentations on a range of timely topics, including terrorism, cyber security, public corruption, evidence handling, SWAT, and the day-to-day operations in a typical FBI office.
The news release described the academy for students to meet peers that share the same passion and drive to make a difference. Participants discover the FBI is much more than a government agency, "it is a family that works for the betterment of the community."
Students accepted into the program will be expected to attend all activities, which will run from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. July 26.
The news release points out punctuality, professional behavior, and appropriate dress are required.
