The DIT Student Internship Program was created to attract and recruit quality student interns to the FDIC’s Division of Information Technology (DIT) who would like to combine academic studies with paid on-the-job experience with the possibility of converting to a permanent position. 

Student Educational Employment Program (SEEP)

The FDIC's Student Educational Employment Program (SEEP) is the authority under which student interns are recruited and hired at the FDIC.  The primary objectives of the SEEP is to attract and recruit quality students to meet short and long-range staffing needs, bring new educational methods and concepts into the workforce, strengthen relationships between educators and federal employers, assist students in applying classroom theory and practical work experience, assist interns in meeting financial obligations, and expanding teaching resources and faculty knowledge of workforce needs.

SEEP consists of the following two flexible components:

  • Student Career Experience Program (SCEP) provides students the opportunity to earn a salary and obtain work experience that is directly related to their education and career goals with the possibility of converting to a permanent position at the completion of the program.  SCEP provides for a partnership between the student, school, and DIT.  A minimum grade point average (GPA) as documented and agreed upon in a working agreement must be maintained.
  • Student Temporary Employment Program (STEP) also enables students to earn a salary while continuing their education however, STEP participant’s work assignments do not need to be related to the student’s academic or career pursuits and there is no provision for competitive appointment.  Participants are required to maintain a grade point average (GPA) of a 2.0 on a 4.0 scale.
