2021 Virtual Summer Strategy Internship Program
USAC administers the $10 billion Universal Service Fund, which the FCC created to address serious gaps in needed coverage.
We deliver funds through four programs (Schools & Libraries, Lifeline, Rural Healthcare and High Cost), to people and places who need it most – rural, hard-to-reach communities, low income households and schools and libraries who need access to facilitate learning. We are passionate about our universal service mission, and we are in the midst of transforming our organization to better support its realization.
As USAC continues to support universal service impacting health care providers, educators, and consumers, it is critical now more than ever that we look for people equally passionate and committed to helping fulfill our mission.
