    Position summary

    velopment opportunities in an environment that embraces your unique skills and experience.

    Your Role and Responsibilities
    Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) is the humanitarian bureau of the Department of State. PRM promotes U.S. interests by providing protection, easing suffering, and resolving the plight of persecuted and forcibly displaced people around the world. These individuals include refugees, migrants, stateless individuals, internally displaced persons (IDPs), and more. PRM does this by coordinating humanitarian policy and diplomacy, providing life-sustaining assistance, working with multilateral organizations to build global partnerships, and promoting best practices in humanitarian response.

    An integral component of U.S. humanitarian policy is the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP), which is primarily implemented via PRMs refugee case processing system called START. PRM also engages with other USRAP partners systems, as needed, to support refugee processing and resettlement. Individuals outside the United States seeking admission as a refugee under Section 207 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) are processed through the USRAP, which is managed by the Department of State in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Those admitted as refugees are eligible for USG-funded resettlement assistance.
    The USRAP reflects the United States highest values and aspirations to compassion, generosity, and leadership. Since 1975, the United States has welcomed over 3 million refugees from all over the world. Refugees have built new lives, homes, and communities in towns and cities across all 50 states. On an annual basis, the President, in consultation with Congress, determines an annual limit for admitting the total number of refugees into the United States.

    The USRAP is a multi-stage process requiring a refugee applicant to undergo case referral/initiation, prescreening interview, DHS U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) interview and adjudication, security checks, and medical examination. For refugee applicants approved for admission to the United States, next steps include domestic resettlement partner placement, cultural orientation, and travel to the United States.
