Interning Virtually with Federal Government Info Session

Contact: Toni McLawhorn, mclawhorn@roanoke.edu

The Virtual Student Federal Service (VSFS) is an eight-month remote internship program for U.S. citizen students, college-level and above, who would like to make a real difference in the work of the U.S. government. Since 2009, thousands of eInterns have expanded the efforts of the U.S. government, working remotely from their school, dorm room, apartment, local library or coffee shop – wherever they happen to be! Virtual interns work only on unclassified projects. They report to their mentors at the Department of State and other federal government agencies in the U.S. and around the world by email, phone, or video chat. VSFS is managed by the Office of eDiplomacy in the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Information Resource Management. VSFS collaborates with federal agencies across government on this program. APPLICATIONS OPEN JULY 1 FOR THE COMING YEAR'S VIRTUAL INTERNSHIPS!

To help you learn more about the program, the VSFS will hold a short virtual Information Session on Tuesday, June 16, 2:00-2:30pm. While attendance is not required, it is encouraged. (The session will be repeated two more times in July, but details are not yet available for those.) REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Click here to register.

Academic credit from Roanoke College could be available for students who meet academic department criteria for such. To learn more about this, a short virtual PA Internship Info Session will be held on Zoom, on Monday, June 22, 1:00 - 1:30pm. To register for this info session and receive the Zoom link, please email careers@roanoke.edu by Friday, June 19.
