US Fish & Wildlife Service - Fellowships for Students

The Directorate Resource Assistant Fellows Program (DFP) is a new fellowship program in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The DFP is designed to provide a fellowship opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to participate full time for at least 11 weeks on projects that meet the qualification of a rigorous internship program.


Participation in the DFP will offer the selected Fellows an opportunity to demonstrate to supervisors and managers their potential for success in an administrative or professional career field in the Service. Management may directly hire a DFP Fellow who has successfully completed the fellowship program and requirements for his or her degree program.
