U.S Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS)
FWS Directorate Resource Assistant Fellows Program (DFP)

In 2019, the U.S Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) will partner with the Student Conservation Association (SCA) to administer the FWS Directorate Resource Assistant Fellows Program (DFP). The DFP is an 11-week fellowship working on projects that support FWS conservation priorities. Eligible students who are pursuing degrees in biological science and/or natural resources management will possess the desired qualifications to apply for participation in the 2019 DFP. These fellowships offer a unique opportunity to gain direct hire authority (upon successful completion of the program), which enables U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and other land management agencies to be able to hire former fellows into permanent, full-time positions within two years of graduation without having to use the competitive process. You can find a list of a few sample projects below.

Eligibility

Eligible students must be enrolled or accepted for enrollment in an undergraduate (rising seniors) or graduate degree program, and who will not complete their degree requirements prior to the completion of the 2019 DFP 11-weeks fellowship. Refer to the flyer for additional requirements.

How to Apply

The first step is to go now and complete your fellowship application online via the Student Conservation Association (SCA) application portal (http://thesca.force.com/members/NewRegistration). You must add the application code PO-00727173 to your application. This initial application must be completed by January 18, 2019.

If you have met the initial eligibility requirement for the 2019 DFP, SCA will send you an email inviting you to apply to specific DFP projects throughout the United States and its territories during the open period in late January or early February. You may have only a few days to apply to specific projects, so please keep an eye on the email account used to establish your SCA application.

Refer to the attached flyer for complete information on the program and the application instructions. For questions, contact the FWS Recruitment team at: connect@fws.gov.
