Student intern positions are available year-round in all GAO mission teams, operational units, and offices. Our interns work between 400 and 640 total hours.
To be eligible for an internship, students must be enrolled in a college or university, on at least a half-time basis as determined by their college or university. Student interns are appointed on a nonpermanent basis and may be eligible to be converted to a permanent position after completing 400 total hours and after meeting degree requirements. These internships are open to both graduate and undergraduate students. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic all of our internships are currently being conducted virtually.
