Welcome

*Note

We are aware of the anxiety and challenges the COVID-19 situation is placing on families throughout the country.  We also know the students are concerned about summer internship options and opportunities. At this point, the Summer 2020 NDIP has been cancelled.  We will keep your application on file for our Fall 2020 opportunities which we are hoping will be open.  Please check back frequently for any updates. In the meantime, please heed the advice of medical professionals and we hope you and your families remain safe and healthy.

The Department of Veterans Affairs National Diversity Internship Program (NDIP) provides a career exploration opportunity through a paid internship for undergraduate and graduate students from diverse socioeconomic and cultures backgrounds to assist the VA in accomplishing its mission while gaining valuable work experience.

Sessions are offered year-round during the spring, summer, and fall for students from various institutions such as, but not limited to Minority Serving Institutions (i.e., Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, Asian American Pacific Islanders, Tribal Colleges and Universities) and disability communities.

In order to participate in the NDIP program, students must apply through an approved organization. VARCom Solutions is proud to be an approved vendor for the NDIP.

Please note that the selection of interns is not premised upon racial factors or preference nor are individuals penalized based upon racial factors. Students and recent graduates from all accredited institutions of higher education can apply and will be considered.
