2021 - 2022 Virtual Student Federal Service (VSFS) Internship Opportunity
The U.S Department of Transportation (DOT) is offering 10 virtual internships for the upcoming academic year through the Virtual Student Federal Service program. Opportunities include traffic safety, climate, transit, trafficking, and employing skill sets focused on writing, analysis, data visualization, research, digital communications, etc. Ideal for students interested in safety, injury prevention, transportation, and public policy. Applications close July 30th.
VSFS is a nine-month, unpaid Internship. Internships are virtual; students have a flexible schedule. The government needs the talent, fresh ideas, and digital excellence of U.S. college students. VSFS Interns will increase the digital capacity of federal agencies participating, whether technically, artistically or via increased communication. Interns have the opportunity to connect with each other and work collaboratively
VSFS Intern duties and responsibilities will vary according to the location and needs of each office and VSFS project. VSFS projects may be research based, contributing to reports on issues such as human rights, economics or the environment. They may also be more technology oriented, such as working on web pages, or helping produce electronic journals. Students are expected to work virtually on an average of 10 hours per week on VSFS Internship projects. Most work and projects are internet-based. All work recognizes that VSFS Interns do not have U.S. Government security clearances.
