Virtual Internships w/ Foreign Service

If you have an interest in working with the U.S. State Department’s Foreign Service Office, but have concerns about relocating, check out their Virtual Student Foreign Service program:

“U.S. college students make a real difference in the work of the U.S. government and one of these ways is through the Virtual Student Foreign Service (VSFS). VSFS is designed to engage civil society in the work of the government by harnessing the expertise and digital excellence of U.S. citizen students. Since 2009, 1,205 eInterns (U.S. college students working remotely) have expanded the reach of U.S. government efforts around the world. 3,385 students applied to the 2014-15 program. Selected eInterns will contribute their skills and creativity to 323 projects from the following agencies:

  • U.S. Department of State
  • U.S. Agency for International Development
  • Army Research Laboratory Library
  • U.S. Department of the Interior
  • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
  • U.S. Department of Education – Federal Student Aid
  • Federal Emergency Management Agency
  • Millennium Challenge Corporation
  • National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  • The Smithsonian Institution
  • U.S. Department of Agriculture – Foreign Agricultural Service

There is something for everyone whether you are someone aspiring to work on diplomatic or development issues overseas, a graphic designer, a software engineer, or a scientist.”
