Opportunities for Recent Graduates

Apply to a Pathways Position

The NIH’s Recent Graduates program is targeted toward recent graduates of trade and vocational schools, community colleges, universities, and other qualifying educational institutions or programs. The program affords developmental experiences in the federal government intended to promote possible careers in the civil service. To be eligible, applicants must apply within two years of degree or certificate completion. Veterans who, due to military service, were unable to apply for positions, will have up to two years from their release or discharge from active duty, not to exceed six years after degree and/or certificate completion. Successful applicants will be placed in a one-year career development program.
