Veteran Internship Program (VIP) Information Session

The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) is in the process of hiring student veterans for our Veteran Internship Program (VIP) - Patent Examiner Student Trainee. The VIP is a paid internship designed specifically for undergraduate student veterans entering their final year of study in engineering at an accredited college or university. It provides student veterans who are studying engineering disciplines, such as computer, electrical or mechanical engineering, and will complete their undergraduate degree between May 2017 and December 2017.  To learn more about the VIP, here is our brochure.

Please register for one of our upcoming info sessions on February 11th, where you will get detailed information about the VIP and hear from current and former program participants. You may attend in person at our headquarters in Alexandria, VA, or virtually via WebEx. Once you register, you will receive the details for virtual and in-person participation.

Session One: 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. ET

Session Two: 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. ET
