Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
SVSP are unpaid volunteers and remain separate from paid interns serving under the Pathways Program. The student’s time is unpaid, but their academic institution may honor the time as credit hours towards completion of their degree/certificate. Students can only volunteer for 6 months per a year.
A fingerprint check with favorable results must be completed before a start date can be established if obtaining government equipment. Security costs are incurred by ASPR; estimated cost is $2,000 per student.
This program is designed to provide students enrolled in a wide variety of educational institutions, from high school to graduate level, with opportunities to work in agencies and explore Federal careers while still in school and while getting paid for the work performed.
