NRAP lets you compete for short-term (typically 3-6 months, potentially up to 12 months) assignments across NOAA. Participating in NRAP is good for your career and your current program when you return with new skills and connections.

When you apply, you and your supervisor will receive an email confirmation. Your supervisor's approval is required for your participation.

Note: To finalize your application, you must click SUBMIT at the bottom of the page. If you’re unsure whether you have submitted or only saved your application, simply return to your application; if it’s still accessible to edit, then you have not submitted it. When you’re satisfied with your information in the online form, click SUBMIT.

The first call for applications, which has useful details and tips, is online: 

If you experience difficulties with the links on this site: 

  • First, open the link via Internet Explorer instead of Google, Firefox, or other browsers.
  • The hypertext link works best when you’re either in the office (.gov network) or signed in via VPN. Mobile devices and laptops operating outside NOAA's firewall are more likely to encounter connection problems.
  • If steps 1 and 2 (above) don’t work, email, and describe the issues you are encountering (include screen shots if possible). The HelpDesk will create a ticket and work with you to resolve your inquiry.
