The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is currently seeking summer interns for the Direct Hire Authority (DHA) Summer Intern Program which is an 11 week paid internship targeting underrepresented groups. The program utilizes several partners to select and onboard our summer interns.  Please keep in mind students are encouraged to apply to most if not all of these vendors to increase their odds of being selected.

DHA Internship Requirements:

  • Current collegiate students and recent graduates (within 2 years of graduation date) 
  • Must be at least 17 years of age 
  • Must be a U.S. citizen 
  • Summer internship only (June-August) 


 How does the DHA Program work? 
The purpose of the DHA internship is to diversify the BLM. The DHA is a tool to assist the bureau, by using nonprofit organizations that focus on underrepresented groups, to fill positions throughout BLM. By having this DHA Appointment, students can be placed non competitively, into a full time, permanent position, with the BLM. The DHA Appointment is good for up to 2 years from the intern’s graduation date. 
The Office of Recruitment and Retention (ORRP), receives projects from all over the BLM. These projects are the 11-week summer internships that students will apply for through one of the partner organizations listed above.
