Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is a nonpartisan legal watchdog group that targets government officials who sacrifice the common good to special interests. We use litigation and investigative reports to shine a light on those who betray the public trust.

CREW seeks undergraduate students to serve as research interns during the summer of 2018. Undergraduate research interns will assist with research and operations alongside CREW’s research team. Interns will learn and use various sources of public information to track special interest spending, campaign spending, and political contributions, and will also review lobbying records. Additional duties include distributing news clips internally, drafting content for reports and blogs, and creating datasets. The ideal candidate will be hard-working, enthusiastic, resourceful, detail-oriented, and interested in legal or ethics issues.
