The Federal Career Intern Program (FCIP) is designed to help agencies recruit and attract exceptional individuals into a variety of occupations. It was created under Executive Order 13162, and is intended for positions at grade levels GS-5, 7, and 9. In general, individuals are appointed to a 2-year internship. Upon successful completion of the internships, the interns may be eligible for permanent placement within an agency.

FCIP opportunities may be announced a variety of ways, including ED'S intranet website, the Office of Personnel Management's (OPM's) internet website, or with college placement officials.
