Are you a U.S. citizen college student interested in virtually interning with the U.S. Department of State and other federal agencies? If so, apply to a Virtual Student Foreign Service (VSFS) eInternship position on USAJobs.gov July 2-20. 276 unique projects and 450+ positions available this year! Resume, transcript, and statement of interest required. eInternships are unpaid and do not require a security clearance. Selected eInterns spend 10 hours per week contributing to projects for an office or section from September 2013 through April 2014. Check out the available projects: http://www.state.gov/vsfs/209292.htm.


The Virtual Student Foreign Service (VSFS) program is the U.S. Department of State’s virtual eInternship program for U.S. citizen college students to apply to contribute to the work carried out by the State Department, U.S. Agency for International development, Broadcasting Board of Governors, and the Departments of Commerce and Agriculture. By committing ten hours per week from September through April, selected eInterns will play an important role in advancing the federal government’s reach in diplomacy, development, journalism, trade, and agriculture initiatives.

This year we have 276 available projects to work on. Last year, the 2012-2013 eInternship class consisted of 343 students from all regions studying a variety of majors who worked on projects focused on research, social media, website design, data visualization, reporting, teaching, and a plethora of other areas. Interested undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students can apply to up to three new positions July 2-20, 2013 on USAJobs. Available positions will be posted on state.gov/vsfs at the end of June. Interviews will be conducted in August and students will be notified in early September if there is a match. Security clearances are not required.

Selected eInterns will be invited to join a closed online community and will receive recognition for successfully completing an eInternship from the State Department.
