Are you interested in working in the government for the summer or after you graduate? If so, Accessibility Services would like to tell you about a great opportunity for UMGC students. The Workforce Recruitment Program for College Students with Disabilities (WRP), coordinated by the U.S. Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Defense, is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal and select private-sector employers with highly motivated college students, graduate students, and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to demonstrate their abilities in the workplace through summer or permanent jobs.

Eligible students must

  • Have a disability and be eligible under the Schedule A hiring authority
  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Be currently enrolled in a degree program on a substantially full-time basis OR have graduated with a degree on or after April 1, 2018

Please note that candidates must reapply each program year to continue to participate. If you are interested in applying to the program and interviewing with a representative from WRP, please visit wrp.gov and click on the Student Registration button to get started.

Registration will close on October 14 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific standard time, and all application materials must be uploaded to the WRP site by that time. No late applications will be accepted. You will need time to get your registration approved by your coordinator, gather your résumé and transcript, and complete your application, so don’t delay!
