Deadline: July 29, 2022

See the opportunities and apply at vsfs.state.gov.

    Since 2009, more than 10,000 U.S. citizen college students have advanced the work of the federal government through Virtual Student Federal Service (VSFS) internships.

    VSFS is a nine-month remote internship open to U.S. citizens who are high school graduates enrolled in higher education at the time of their application and participation. Participants can be half-time or full-time undergraduate, graduate or postgraduate students. Because the program is virtual, students can complete the internship from anywhere.

    The time commitment is about 10 hours per week during the school year. There are opportunities for all, from political analysis to speechwriting. Internships are unpaid but may be eligible for course credit.

    Students apply between July 1-28 on OpenOpps.USAJobs.gov/community/vsfs. Selections are made in August. Internships start in September.

    Here are a few examples of possible internships:
