Hannah Guffey

The Virtual Student Federal Service (VSFS) is the largest virtual internship program in the world!  This year we will offer nearly 3,000 positions with 50+ federal agencies.  VSFS offers unique mentoring and exposure to job opportunities within the U.S. government.

Each year, applications are open to U.S. college students from July 1 - 31 on USAJOBS.govReal experience is waiting for students at NASA, the Smithsonian, U.S. Department of State, Forest Service, Indian Health Service, CIA, National Park Service and others. All the projects on offer are here: http://vsfs.state.gov/ by clicking on “See All Projects” at the top! To #ApplyinJuly to their top three projects, students must log on to USAJOBS, create an account, build a resume, write a statement of interest, and upload a transcript. 

Students play an important role in moving the government forward from analog to digital.  There’s something for everyone: graphic design, research, mapping, videography, foreign language expertise, marketing, community management, writing, calculation, policy planning, app development, and more! 

Selected eInterns should expect to spend ten hours a week on their project from September through May.  This is unpaid, volunteer work, but eInterns make connections that make a difference, gain valuable experience, and sometimes get course credit.  All applicants must be U.S. citizens in student status at a university in the U.S. or abroad.  VSFS is open to undergrad through PhD candidates taking classes full or part-time, in-person or on-line.
