Virtual Student Federal Service

About Virtual Student Federal Service

- Through the Virtual Student Foreign Service (VSFS) program, students can work on projects that advance the work of government on multiple fronts. Projects include helping counter violent extremism, strengthening human rights monitoring, developing virtual programs, engaging in digital communications, mapping, economic and political reporting, data analysis, graphic design, and app building.
VSFS is accommodating and flexible. Through VSFS, students can intern from wherever they are – from dorm rooms to libraries to coffee shops, or anywhere in the world with a broadband or Internet connection. Students set their own schedules too – working on projects on a timetable that fits their life.
- Through VSFS, students can also choose projects from a wide variety of agencies – more than 50 federal agencies.
- Through VSFS, federal employees connect with students from diverse backgrounds and skills, as well as with their colleagues across government.
