Virtual Student Federal Service internships are open to U.S. citizen college students (rising freshmen through Ph.D. candidates) to work on projects remotely for more than 50 agencies. 

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.

Students can be part-time or full-time, in the U.S. or overseas. The time commitment is about 10 hours per week from September-May. Virtual internships are flexible and unpaid.
