Some Useful Information For You

The Army Fellows program is a five-year program designed to build a multifunctional, mobile cadre of highly qualified personnel for the Army. Army Fellows are full-time federal civilian employees and are paid a full salary during all phases of the program. The first two years of the program include course-work conducted at the Logistics Leadership Center in Texarkana, Texas and Texas A&M University-Texarkana resulting in a masters degree in business. The remaining 47 months of the program consist of a series of geographically rotational on-the-job training assignments. Education expenses are paid and a signing bonus of up to 25 percent of base salary may be offered for successful Fellows. Fellows are compensated at the GS-7 through 13 pay grades (or equivalent).
The Army Career Intern Program is a competitive training program that is designed to prepare employees in various occupations for subsequent advancement in professional, administrative, and technological career fields with the Army Civilian Corps. Intern graduates build the bench for future leaders in Army’s professional occupations. Interns are trained in more than 22 career programs covering over 150 different occupations. They enter the program at the GS-5 and GS-7 levels (or equivalent) as permanent full-time employees. Interns receive career/career-conditional appointments in the competitive service. DA interns reside on HQDA student detachment spaces for the first 24 months; local interns reside on mission rolls. Upon graduation from the program, interns are placed on mission rolls in journey level GS-9 or GS-11 positions (or equivalent), according to the career program intern target grade and availability of permanent placement opportunities. Individuals selected for centrally funded HQDA Intern positions will be required to sign a mobility agreement. The mobility agreement commits the Army to providing training and permanent placement upon graduation. In turn, the intern commits to Army-wide geographical availability in order to receive the optimal training and permanent placement opportunities deemed at the time to be in the best interests of the Army.
