Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PSA has suspended their Spring 2021 Internship Program for all units. At this time, we can accept applications for the Summer semester, although we do not yet know if we will be offering internships for Summer 2021. We will update this website as soon as a decision has been made.


The Pretrial Services Agency for the District of Columbia’s (PSA) Internship Program provides a unique opportunity to gain valuable professional experience while pursuing your academic interests. This program is intended to provide substantive, hands-on experience to students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs.

All internships are unpaid and students must work a minimum of 12 hours per week.
