Federal Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) for Students or Recent Graduates with Disabilities:
The WRP is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal and private sector employers nationwide with highly motivated college students and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to prove their abilities in the workplace through summer, temporary or permanent jobs.
The Department of Defense (DOD) coordinates this program on behalf of the President's Committee on Employment of Persons with Disabilities. DOD screens candidates and provides listings of available students in early spring for selection and also pays for all necessary accommodations such as special computer equipment or readers. USGS pays for individuals hired through this program since they receive Federal appointments under other existing appointment authorities for persons with disabilities (Schedule A). Hires under this program count against FTE.
