Virtual Student Federal Service Internships
U.S. Department of State & other federal agencies
Posted: 07/08/2022
Expires: 07/28/2022 12:00am

Apply between July 1-28 for a part-time, Virtual Student Federal Service (VSFS) internship with the U.S. Department of State and more than 30 other federal agencies.

Since 2009, more than 10,000 U.S. citizen college students have advanced the work of the federal government. The time commitment is about 10 hours per week during the school year. There are opportunities for all, from data visualization to political analysis. Internships are unpaid but may be eligible for course credit.

U.S. citizen high school graduates enrolled at least half-time in college during their application and participation are eligible. Rising college freshmen through Ph.D. students are welcome to apply. Students who graduate early are ineligible because applicants must be in student status at the time of their application and for the duration of the internship. Because the program is virtual, students can intern from anywhere. Half-time is defined by the school.

Students may select up to three internships. A maximum of 300 applicants may apply to each internship project. Interns are selected in August.  Internships begin in September and run for the duration of the academic year.

Apply between July 1-28 at OpenOpps. For detailed instructions, visit the Open Opps Help Center.

Diplomatic Liaison Intern
Nightingale Initiative for Global Health
Posted: 07/08/2022
Expires: 12/31/2022 12:00am

Join the all-volunteer team of the Nightingale Initiative for Global Health — often called NIGH — to work with NIGH’s Co-Founders to develop the role of our new ‘Diplomatic Liaison Intern’ — to further NIGH’s grassroots-to-global commitment to the ‘Nightingale Declaration for A Healthy World,’ now in 11 language versions. This Internship is aimed to engage the often-unheard voices of ‘grassroots’ nurses and concerned citizens — to share their stories with ‘global’ Ambassadors — and their staff — posted at the United Nations in New York City and Geneva, Switzerland. Familiarity with Spanish, French — or a second language, beyond English — would be a plus, but not required.


  • Develop NIGH’s NGO database of contacts with UN Ambassadors and their ‘Mission’ (Embassy) staff, in both New York and Geneva, as well as with key UN staff leaders and staff members.
  • Categorize this database to coincide with the languages of the Ambassadors’ nations.
  • Bridge the global-grassroots gap by informing these Ambassadors and their Missions about NIGH’s work: The multiple language versions of the Nightingale Declaration for A Healthy World — paired with our related stories about achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  • Collaborate with NIGH’s language ‘Advisors’ in each instance.
  • Craft letters and emails to inform these Ambassadors and their staff.
  • Request willing Ambassadors to officially share these efforts with their colleagues and nations — including with their nations’ nurses — and on NIGH’s webpages—featuring each of the eleven Nightingale Declaration language versions.
  • Identify initial Schools of Nursing from UN Member States to represent nations where these eleven languages are spoken.
  • Collaborate with initial Deans and Professors of these Schools to assign their student nurses to post related stories.
  • Keep UN Ambassadors and their staffs — as well as key UN  Secretariat leaders and their staffs — informed as UN SDG stories are posted on NIGH’s website.
