Can a federal conviction be sealed?

Not while you are actually incarcerated and serving time for it. If such a thing existed it would be open to the possibility of governmental abuse and people could be thrown in prison with no record of their convictions.

If you are asking if they can be expunged, I personally have never heard of it happening.

You may refer to the below website for more complete information HOWEVER it only speaks to PARDONS and CLEMENCY, neither of which addresses the subject of your question about having one SEALED.
