The Texas Politics Project at The University of Texas at Austin provides this public web service for students seeking political and government internships, and for employers seeking to locate student interns. Employers can follow the “Post an Internship” directions to a submission form that enables them to submit an internship to be posted on the website. 

While this web service is designed primarily to help connect UT-Austin students with opportunities in politics and government in Austin, students and political and governmental entities across the state are invited to use the site. All submissions are screened before being approved for posting.

If you are a UT student looking to participate in GOV 374N, the Department of Government's internship course, during the Fall 2014 semester, you can still gain admission to the program if you act during the first week of classes.  For more information about the Government Department Internship Program at the University of Texas at Austin and to find the application form necessary to enroll in the course, visit the Internships link at the UT Department of Government’s website. Dr. James Henson directs the Texas Politics Project and the Government Department Internship Program.
