Workforce Recruitment Program
The Workforce Recruitment Program for College Students with Disabilities (WRP), coordinated by the U.S. Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Defense, is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal and select private-sector employers with highly motivated college students and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to demonstrate their abilities in the workplace through summer or permanent jobs.
Every year, WAIII staff serve as a campus coordinator for the WRP. Generally, students are invited to apply to the WRP between August-October. For more information or to get on the distribution list for the next WRP application period, contact:
