Employment Opportunities

The Marshall Project is an equal opportunity employer, which welcomes qualified applicants of all races, ethnicities, physical abilities, genders, and sexual orientations, including people who have been previously incarcerated.


The Marshall Project offers a limited number of paid summer internships for student journalists. Interns work in our New York City offices alongside our staff of award-winning reporters and editors, pitch and write their own stories and data and visualization projects and contribute to longer investigative work. Internships generally last eight weeks. We also offer training sessions in topics such as FOIAs, investigative techniques, data analysis and more.

This program is primarily intended for young journalists: rising college juniors or seniors, graduate students and people who have just graduated. You don't have to be a journalism major to apply, but most interns have had some prior experience at a student or professional publication. Preference is given to applicants who demonstrate a deep familiarity with U.S. criminal justice issues.

If you are interested in applying for summer 2018, please send a cover letter, resume and clips or other examples of your work to the email below. The deadline to apply is Jan. 26, 2018.

At this point, The Marshall Project does not offer spring or fall internships.
