Virtual Student Federal Service Internship

The Virtual Student Federal Service program connects the talents of U.S. citizen college students with the needs of federal agencies. Since 2009, more than 10,000 remote interns have advanced the work of the federal government. The time commitment is about 10 hours per week during the school year. There are opportunities for all, from data visualization to political analysis. Internships are unpaid but may be eligible for course credit. Speak with a guidance counselor regarding course credit requirements.

U.S. citizen high school graduates, from rising college freshmen through Ph.D. students, who are enrolled at least half-time (as defined by the school) in college during their application and participation are eligible. Because the program is virtual, students can intern from anywhere.

Students apply between February 1 and February 28 and may apply for up to five internships. A maximum of 300 U.S. citizen college students may apply to each internship project. Internship mentors select students in March and April. Internships begin in September and run for the duration of the academic year.

The program is open to any student part time community college through PhD or equivalent. 

They must be HS graduate and enrolled in college for the entirety of the academic year to be eligible. Graduate students are welcome so long as they are planning to graduate spring 2025.
