Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP)

A federal program providing recruitment opportunities to highly motivated students with disabilities eager to prove their abilities in the workplace.

About WRP

Nationwide highly motivated college students and recent graduates with disabilities are eager to prove their abilities in the workplace through summer or permanent jobs. The WRP is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal and private sector employers with those very students.


To be eligible for the WRP, candidates must be U.S. citizens, who are eligible for the Schedule A Hiring Authority that are current, full-time undergraduate or graduate students with a disability, or have graduated from such an institution on or after April 1, 2021.

Students may also participate if they meet all of the other requirements for the program but are taking a reduced course load due to a disability or if they are taking less than a substantially full-time load in the enrollment period immediately prior to graduation.

Again, WRP also allows recent graduates who have graduated within two and a half years of the December release of the database to participate, so those that graduated from a postsecondary program in April 2021 or more recently are eligible. Candidates who graduated prior to April 2021 are not eligible to participate this year.

Student Registration and Approval

Students participate in the WRP through a two-part registration process. Candidates can start to register in late August, by going to the WRP website and click on the Student Registration button. There they can complete the first part of their registration and submit the information to WRP. Once they have been approved to participate by the campus coordinator, the candidates will get an automatically generated email with their username (email address) and temporary password. Students can then begin the application process.
