GAO is an independent, non-partisan agency that works for Congress, examining how taxpayer dollars are spent and providing information to help the government manage money more efficiently. Internships are available year round in all GAO mission teams, operational units, and offices.

Hear about the student experience

“My internship focused on giving me hands-on experience. There was almost always something to do—whether it was engagement-related work, interesting seminars and speakers, or enrichment activities with other interns or peers.”
