Internships & Externships
Government Accountability Project welcomes undergraduate, graduate, and law students to work with us as interns or externs for credit throughout the year.

What former Government Accountability Project interns have to say…
What was your proudest moment?
“I was able to translate the Tunisian Whistleblower laws from Arabic to English, which are now available to others through Government Accountability Project.”
“I’m really proud of an intake memo I wrote for a potential client. There was a lot of information to sort through and condense, and it was a fun challenge.”
“I am proud of communicating with FOIA offices concerning investigations and learning how to navigate that system.”
What was your best day at Government Accountability Project?
“One day that I really enjoyed was when I got to go to a hearing for a few new MSPB appointees on the Hill and write it up for my supervisor. The atmosphere on the Hill was always exciting for me.”
“My best day at Government Accountability Project was the opportunity to discuss ongoing investigations.”
