Apply for the FBI Phoenix Citizens Academy

ARIZONA—The FBI Phoenix field office is seeking candidates for the 2024 Citizens Academy. Classes are held in person at our Phoenix, Tucson, and Flagstaff offices.

The FBI Citizens Academy program is an engaging six to eight-week program that gives business, religious, civic, and community leaders an inside look at the FBI. Classes meet in the evenings at FBI field offices around the country. The mission of the FBI Citizens Academies is to foster a greater understanding of the role of federal law enforcement in the community through frank discussion and education.

Candidates are nominated by FBI employees, former Citizens Academy graduates, and community leaders. Interested community members may also self-nominate if they hope to be selected.

The deadline to submit nominations for the 2023 Citizens Academy in Arizona is November 28, 2023 by 12:00 p.m. If you are interested in applying, or if you are a Citizens Academy graduate or past/present FBI employee who would like to recommend someone you know, please complete the nomination process below.

Incomplete and late nominations will not be accepted. Once nominations are received/reviewed, candidates will be notified within 3-4 weeks of the next step in the process.
