Workforce Recruitment Program for Students with Disabilities

The Workforce Recruitment Program for students with disabilities is coordinated by the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) and the Department of Defense (DOD). The WRP is a referral program of college level students with disabilities who are seeking summer or permanent jobs. The candidates are recruited and referred by ODEP and DOD.

Once a student is selected, they can begin working at Division Newport as soon as early as May of that school year and must end their work period no later than 30 September.


  • Applicants must be a US citizen.
