The Student Intern Program offers post-secondary students 12 weeks of full-time federal employment, up to 480 hours, during the summer months. Approximate employment dates are from the end of May through mid-August. Actual length of employment is contingent upon budget and workload. Employment is intended to continue each subsequent year during the summer months while the student is enrolled in a degree program.

Internship career fields include a wide variety of engineers, scientists, contract specialists, and others. See individual job announcement for details.

We are a values-based community of over 290K federal civilian employees committed to providing superior management and support services to the US Army. We serve in the Pentagon and at bases in the US and abroad. We are accountants, city managers, strategic planners, management analysts, educators, engineers, emergency managers, logisticians, scientists, medical professionals, social workers, and much more.

We are federal civilian employees like those in other federal organizations such as the Department of Justice, the Department of State, and the Department of Homeland Security. Most of us have never and will never serve in a military uniform. We don’t wear military uniforms and are not required to attend boot camp or enlist. We are graduates of public and private universities across the US. We are lifelong learners who are afforded career-long professional growth opportunities such as voluntary assignments overseas and funded formal training and education.

Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis and early applicants will receive first consideration. If you previously applied to a Student Trainee job announcement that closed on March 31, it is not necessary to re-apply.

Upon successful completion of a student’s internship and academic program, individuals may be non-competitively converted to a permanent full-time position.
