Workforce Recruitment Program
The Workforce Recruitment Program for College Students with Disabilities (WRP), coordinated by the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) and the U.S. Department of Defense, is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal and private sector employers with highly motivated college students, graduate students, and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to prove their abilities in the workplace through summer or permanent jobs.

Eligible students must:
- have a disability and be eligible under the Schedule A hiring authority
- be a United States citizen
- be enrolled in a degree program on a substantially full-time basis OR have graduated with a degree in April 2016 or more recently.

If you are interested in interviewing with a representative from WRP or learning more about the program, please contact: Caroline Bodnar, carolc@umbc.edu.


Please visit www.wrp.gov for more information regarding WRP and click on the student registration button to get started!  For more information watch this youtube video.


All application materials must be uploaded to the WRP site by October 17th by 12:00am PST. No late applications will be accepted. You will need time to get your registration approved by Caroline Bodnar, gather your resume and transcript, and complete your application, so please don’t delay!


We hope your fall semester is off to a great start!
