Summer 2024: June 3 - August 9

About Our Program

The Comptroller of the Treasury's Audit Internship Program is a 10-week paid educational and experiential learning opportunity offering undergraduate students a chance to witness and participate in the audit operations of the office. Interns will spend the summer building skills through their assignment to an active audit, audit-specific training, and professional development training. Interns will also have opportunities to build relationships with each other through shared experiences, such as touring the State Capitol and the Tennessee State Museum.

Performance Audit Intern responsibilities may include learning to examine and review records, reports, and management practices for state government entities receiving public funds. Interns may have the opportunity to evaluate the following: the adequacy of internal controls; the efficiency and effectiveness of an entity's operations and systems; and compliance with laws, regulations, contracts, and grant agreements. Performance Audit Interns will learn to audit state agencies and departments to determine the extent to which they are faithfully carrying out their programs.


Performance audit internship opportunities are based out of Nashville, TN. Depending on the audit assignment, interns may have the opportunity for limited travel during the summer. Typical travel opportunities are in the Nashville area; however, some may allow for travel to other parts of Tennessee.

Who We're Looking For

We are looking for rising juniors, seniors, or graduate accounting students who are interested in applying what they've learned in the classroom to governmental auditing.

Successful interns are those who are adaptable, able to think critically, work well both individually and as part of a team, and are willing to learn and grow. Candidates should exhibit strong interpersonal, verbal communication, organizational, and writing skills. Interns are expected to apply their classroom knowledge to meaningful audit work.
