Sam Houston Austin Internship Program (SHAIP)
The Sam Houston State Austin Internship Program is a wonderful opportunity for top SHSU students to learn about the legislative process, gain experience in the world of state governance, and apply workforce skills, all while building their resumes and professional networks.
Students accepted to the program are placed in various legislative offices to work full-time during the 85th legislative session, from early January through May 2017. Students who are selected will earn academic credit for their work and engage in a business environment that combines academic rigor with real-world responsibility. Financial support is provided by the University.
SHSU is looking for students from all majors who are bright, hard-working, and responsible. Students interested in more information can check the Application Page and the FAQ page on the website. In addition, all students are encouraged to contact Intern Director, Mike Yawn, for a more thorough overview of the program.
