Federal Bureau of Prisons SRCOSTEP Externship

The SRCOSTEP is offered by the USPHS to attract highly motivated and qualified students to the Commissioned Corps of the USPHS. Students commission at the Ensign (O-1) rank during their last year of academic study towards their degree in an accredited program. In return for financial support, SRCOSTEP participants agree to an assignment at the sponsoring government agency after graduation equal to twice the period of sponsorship. For example, 9 months of sponsorship would garner an 18 month payback obligation.
