NASA WFF Education - Pathways
PATHWAYS PROGRAM Return to WFF Education Site

On December 27, 2010, President Obama signed Executive Order (E.O.) 13562 establishing the Pathways Programs, to provide clear paths to Federal employment for students and recent graduates. On May, 11, 2012, the Office of Personnel Management, or OPM, issued the final regulations implementing the Pathways Programs, in the Federal Register/Vol. 77, No. 92/May 11, 2012. The Pathways Programs consists of three components which are the Internship Program, the Recent Graduates Program, and the Presidential Management Fellows Program. The new streamlined Pathways Programs replaces the Student Temporary Employment and Student Career Experience Programs and enhances the Presidential Management Fellows Program.

Unlike with NASA internships, which are generally carried out in sessions with definite end dates, the Pathways program allows recent graduates to apply for federal employment at NASA indefinitely.

NASA Pathways Programs provide opportunities for students and recent graduates to be considered for Federal employment through:

- NASA Pathways Intern Employment Program
- NASA Pathways Recent Graduates Program
- NASA Pathways Presidential Management Fellows Program

Each program has its own minimum requirements which can be found on the Pathways landing page.

NASA Pathways is open to current students and recent grads.

For questions or more details, please contact Ann Richmond, Human Resources Specialist at Goddard Space Flight Center.
