The NCUA promotes financial inclusion to better serve a changing population and economy. As part of that mission, the NCUA participates in recruitment efforts to encourage an inclusive workforce. Diversity and inclusion are integrated into all aspects of the agency’s operations – they are part of the fabric of our organizational culture.

Our student intern programs provide valuable work experience for high school, undergraduate, graduate, law, and Ph.D. students who are considering a career in economics, finance, accounting, information technology, law, and human resources, among other disciplines.
