EEOC Internship Program


At EEOC, we work to ensure that employees and applicants enjoy the opportunity to compete, advance and succeed on a level playing field, without regard to race, skin color, gender, religion, national origin, disability or age.

Internships at EEOC are designed to provide high school, college, graduate and law students with the opportunity to gain hands on experience working on challenging projects and/or cases involving issues of federal anti-discrimination law. Interns work closely with experienced attorneys and specialists on a variety of diverse assignments. Intern work assignments include legal research and writing, research and analysis of public policy developments, correspondence with Commission stakeholders on a range of discrimination-related issues, and assistance with charge intake and investigations. We encourage students of all majors to apply as our internship allows students to explore career fields in public service while gaining superior work experience.

"Interning at the Commission I have had the opportunity to perform substantive work to further my understanding of both the legal and policy making facets of the agency. Working first hand with these experienced professionals is a great way to get your feet wet and explore future legal opportunities."  Read more...

Internships are generally offered year-round on a rolling admission basis. Internships are unpaid volunteer positions, but we will work with students who are interested in applying for external stipends or academic credit.
