Applying to the Austin Internship Program

Applications for the Austin Internship Program will be available online August 28, 2018 and will be accepted until at least October 15, 2018.*  Applications should be submitted to Mike Yawn, the Director of the Austin Internship Program, in CHSS 477.

University staff will review submitted applications, and may request interviews or additional paperwork from selected candidates.  Following these steps, students will be selected to interview with designated offices in the Texas Legislature (or other government offices).  To obtain an internship with the Austin Internship Program, students must be selected by both the Austin Internship Program staff and an approved office in Austin.  Criminal background checks may be run by the University, the legislative, or both.

The application can be found here.  For additional information, please do not hesitate to contact Professor Mike Yawn at or by phone at 936-294-1456.
