How to Apply - Summer Interns


Due to budget constraints this year, MDFP will not be able to support any student intern positions.

We invite students to contact us in Fall 2014 for Summer Intern Positions for 2015.


Student opportunities at FDA and other federal agencies are now posted as “Pathways” announcements. If you are interested, please frequently monitor and search for Pathways announcements on www.usajobs.gov. It is very important that you include all listed documents (transcript, resume, etc.) when applying. If you feel you qualify for several announcements, apply to each one individually. Practice using the website. If you are not familiar with www.usajobs.gov, please go to the website ahead of time, create an account, upload your documents, and practice searching for announcements.
