NCJA Military Internship Program 


NCJA, in partnership with WorkEx and the Department of Defense’s Skillbridge program, has established an internship specifically designed for military service men and women.  As military personnel transition out of service and into civilian community, it is easy for them to believe that careers as corrections or police officers might be the extent of opportunities open to them in the criminal justice system.  NCJA, with State Administering Agencies as its core membership, is perfectly suited to provide service members leaving the military with a view of the wide range of career choices in criminal justice if that is how they would next like to service their community, state and country. As such, NCJA offers an internship for military personnel interested in pursuing careers in the Criminal Justice system.  

We at NCJA are proud to give back to our Service men and woman through this internship program.

Undergraduate Internship Program



The NCJA offers semester-long and summer internships. 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; report on congressional hearings, Justice Department briefings, and other events; and participate in other projects as assigned. Clerical duties are minimal.


This is a remote position. Interns may work from anywhere in the United States. (*We can offer office space for those preferring to work at an onsite location).


The position requires access to the Internet, Microsoft Office or similar office suite applications, and a phone.


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 30 and 40 hours per week, we can work to accommodate academic schedules.


Submit an application: send a cover letter, resume and writing samples (5 pages max) to the internship coordinator listed below. Current transcripts are strongly encouraged.
