The Pathways Internship Program provides students with opportunities to explore careers in Federal government. This program is for current students, and replaces the Student Career Experience Program (SCEP) and Student Temporary Employment Program (STEP). The new Internship Program provides students in high schools, colleges, trade schools and other qualifying educational institutions with paid opportunities to work in agencies and explore Federal careers while completing their education. Through the Internship Program, students are able to gain valuable work experience for pay while enrolled at least half-time in school. Student Pathways internship opportunities are advertised and managed locally by each of the VA Medical Centers.
For more information on this program, please contact the Pathways coordinator at the local VA Medical Center. The coordinator may be located in either the Human Resources or the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Office. Students can access http://www.opm.gov/hiringreform/pathways/ to obtain information about these programs, and may access https://www.usajobs.gov/StudentsAndGrads to view current vacancy announcements.
