Virtual Student Federal Service Opportunity for HBCU Students and Career Counselors
Posted By: Will Moss on June 10, 2020 |
All about VSFS
Are you a student looking for a way to make a real difference in the work of your government, while also gaining job experience and connections?
Are you a federal employee looking for help on projects? Need new ideas or fresh perspectives? VSFS can benefit you!
Through the Virtual Student Federal Service (VSFS) program, students can work on projects that advance the work of government on multiple fronts. Projects include helping counter violent extremism, strengthening human rights monitoring, developing virtual programs, engaging in digital communications, mapping, economic and political reporting, data analysis, graphic design, and app building.
No more nine to five
VSFS is accommodating and flexible. Through VSFS, students can intern from wherever they are – from dorm rooms to libraries to coffee shops, or anywhere in the world with a broadband or Internet connection. Students set their own schedules too – working on projects on a timetable that fits their life.
Through VSFS, students can also choose projects from a wide variety of agencies – more than 40 federal agencies. Through VSFS, federal employees connect with students from diverse backgrounds and skills, as well as with their colleagues across government.
Student Information Session
U.S. citizen college students (undergraduate and up) apply in July for e-internships for the 2020-20201 school year via USAJobs.
