Non-Paid Student Volunteer Intern Program

The 2015 Non-Paid Student Volunteer (NPSV) Internship Program is an unpaid internship designed to attract outstanding students pursuing their bachelorís or masterís degree while providing intensive educational and experiential learning. Interns in the program will have real life work objectives and tasks provided by individual managers; such tasks will serve to support the academic and professional development of the student as well as accomplish the DSS mission. Selected students in the program will be required to obtain and maintain their secret level security clearance (sponsored by DSS).

The purpose of the NPSV Internship Program is to foster learning and allow the student to develop desirable skills that the participant can use to obtain employment opportunities within the federal government or private industry. Our goal is to train and equip students with the skills necessary to successfully enter the workforce upon completion of a four year degree. College students will have the unique opportunity to work with professionals in the industry and to experience some of the day to day work activities encountered by the DSS workforce.

Eligible applicants must be US citizens, currently enrolled at an accredited college/university with either part-time or full-time status. Applicants should be college sophomores, juniors or seniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 based on a 4.0 grading scale. All questions regarding the internship program should be forwarded to
