NCJA Internship Program
The NCJA offers semester-long and summer internships to undergraduates. This internship program is designed to provide substantive experience in criminal justice policy. Interns primarily research and write articles for two weekly newsletters; summarize and analyze criminal justice research reports; attend and report on congressional hearings, Justice Department briefings, and other local events; and participate in other projects as assigned. Clerical duties are minimal.
Internships are open to all undergraduate majors. Qualified candidates will have excellent writing skills, be inquisitive and hard-working, and have a general interest in criminal justice and/or journalism. Internships are unpaid and available on a full-time or part-time basis throughout the academic year and during the summer. While we prefer students to work between 20 and 40 hours per week, we can work to accommodate academic schedules.
