DLA Pathways Internship Program
The DLA Pathways Internship Program (formally known as the Student Educational Employment Program, which included the STEP and SCEP programs) provides federal employment opportunities to students who are enrolled or accepted for enrollment as degree seeking students taking at least a half-time academic, technical, or vocational course load in an accredited high school, technical, vocational, 2 or 4 year college or university, graduate or professional school.
For students, the DLA Pathways Internship Program provides work experience which is directly related to the student's academic program and career goals. Students may be noncompetitively converted to term, career or career-conditional appointments following completion of their academic and work experience requirements.
The DLA Internship Program benefits both agencies and students. Agencies can discover first-hand the abilities of a potential employee. This internship provides managers the ability to evaluate the student's performance in real work situations. Students, on the other hand, can avail themselves of such flexibilities as year round employment and flexible work schedules and assignments. Students in an internship gain exposure to public service while enhancing their educational goals and shaping their career choices.
