The SVSP is one of several Federal Internships available in the Federal Government. Participants in the SVSP are unpaid volunteers.
This program is for students who are currently enrolled in an accredited educational institution seeking unpaid work experience or education-related training opportunities.Federal employee relatives may participate in SVSP consistent with the FDA policy on employment of relatives.
Volunteering at the FDA is limited to services performed by a student, with the permission of the educational institution where the student is enrolled. A written agreement between FDA and the educational institution must be established before we assign our volunteers.
