July 18, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

Hello Hoyas!

The Virtual Student Federal Service (VSFS) program is up and ready for applications with 630 (unpaid) internships! This virtual internship program has existed for years as a part of an ongoing effort by the State Department to harness technology and facilitate new forms of diplomatic engagement amongst young people. All class levels qualify. Deadline to apply is July 28, selections occur in August, and work starts in September. For example, HHS is looking for an intern to perform data analysis and design visualizations and DHS is seeking an intern to research the “nefarious activities of Mexican Drug Cartels” (fascinating after binging on Ozark). In short, there’s a wide variety of interesting projects!

Here are a few things to note before you get started. 

  • Join the community to receive the latest updates.
  • Watch this 3-min video for tips on how to apply. 
  • Apply to up to 3 projects.
  • Search by agency and skill, but also, use the keyword feature at the top. When searching the keyword “data,” 250 internships appeared.
  • For questions about how to start a federal application, check out the resource guide on Handshake and watch our Federal 101 video series

I am around in August if you need support. Feel free to make a virtual appointment via Handshake. I hope you are enjoying your summer break!

All the best,
Jodi Schneiderman |
