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 2017or more recently. 

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


If you are interested in interviewing with a representative from WRP or learning more about the program, please contact Rachel Green atrjjacksn@illinois.edu .

All application materials must be uploaded to the WRP site by October 16th by 11:59pm PST. No late applications will be accepted. You will need time to get your registration approved by your coordinator, gather your resume and transcript, and complete your application, so please don’t delay!
