Internships

Workforce Recruitment Program
The Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) is a recruitment and referral program that connects public and private sector employers nationwide to college students and recent graduates with disabilities. The WRP is co-sponsored by the US Department of Labor, the Department of Defense and participating organizations throughout the United States. The WRP gives students in all fields of study the opportunity to market their abilities to a wide variety of potential employers across the United States. The program is a good way to gain valuable skills and experience.

Emerging Leaders
Emerging Leaders is a competitive program that places undergraduate and graduate students with disabilities in fulfilling summer internships and provides them with leadership development opportunities. Emerging Leaders partners with businesses to help them find outstanding young talent while also considering diversity and inclusion in their hiring practices.

American Association of People with Disabilities
Each year, the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) hosts two Summer Internship Programs for College Students with Disabilities in Washington D.C., providing paid travel to and from Washington D.C., paid fully-accessible housing, and living stipends. These programs are generously funded by the Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation (MEAF) and Microsoft Corporation.

EntryPoint!
EntryPoint! is a program of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) offering outstanding internship opportunities for students with apparent and non-apparent disabilities in science, engineering, mathematics, computer science, and some fields of business.

Employment

It is important to realize that there are differences to the accommodation process between college and employment. Should you disclose to an employer that you have a disability? If so, when should you disclose? Who should you contact if you need an accommodation?
