International Auditor Fellows
GAO's 2019 International Auditor Fellowship Program: Wednesday, March 20 - Friday, July 12
Application Deadline: September 24, 2018
Accountability and transparency are key to advancing good governance, and supreme audit institutions (SAI) play a critical role in improving government performance. GAO's annual International Auditor Fellowship Program, a 4-month intensive study course, is designed to strengthen the ability of SAIs to fulfill their missions and enhance accountability and governance worldwide.
GAO initiated this program in 1979 in response to increased federal government expenditures abroad and the related need to strengthen accountability over these funds.
Over 580 middle- to senior-level officials from the SAIs of more than 105 countries have graduated from the program. Many of them have since become Auditors General, Deputy Auditors General, or Government Ministers.
