Student Intern Program

Welcome

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) invites currently enrolled students to apply for our "Student Intern Program" (SIP) providing students with employment opportunities year-round.

Student employees gain valuable professional experience as an assistant in scientific, professional, technical, and/or administrative areas. The "Student Intern Program" could be a paid or unpaid internship. The internship opportunity gives students insight into considering a future career with USDA. Annually USDA employs thousands of students nationwide throughout our 7 Mission Areas, 19 agencies and 16 Administrative Offices.

Applications for USDA internships are submitted through www.usda.usajobs.gov
