The Partnership for Public Service has learned from our research that students in college are generally interested in working for the federal government but lack the knowledge to actually find and apply for those jobs and internships. We also learned that students look to their peers for advice and assistance throughout the job-search process. As such, the Federal Service Student Ambassadors program is designed to increase interest in federal service on college campuses through developing a corps of passionate student advocates who will actively promote public service following their completion of a federal summer internship.
As a Federal Service Student Ambassador you will educate and inform students on your campus of federal jobs and internships. Having already completed a federal internship yourself, you will lead outreach efforts to your campus community during the 2009-10 academic year. The federal government needs to fill 45,000 entry level jobs each year and you can help to fill this gap with the best and the brightest.

Graduate students (including graduate students obtaining a JD or an MBA) are eligible to be an Ambassador. Any student who is returning for another full academic year on their campus after Summer 2009 is eligible to apply. Just think carefully about whether you will have the time and energy to devote to the effort- we estimate Ambassadors will work approximately 7 hours per week on this effort, but this will obviously change from week to week based on various factors.
