Here is some information about a great paid internship program for conservative college students who want to work a legislative session in the Texas House or Senate. The information below was taken from the Texas Conservative Coalition Research Institute’s website.
The Texas Conservative Coalition Research Institute (TCCRI) is strengthening the next generation of conservative leaders through a legislative study program at the State Capitol. Interns will serve as full-time legislative assistants to members of the Texas Conservative Coalition (TCC) during the 82nd Legislative Session, beginning in January 2011. Each Governor William P. Clements, Jr. Scholar will work in the office of a state legislator to help prepare bill research summaries, bill tracking, constituent correspondence, and other office assignments. Clements Scholars will also work directly with TCCRI.
The application period for the 82nd Texas Legislature is now open. Please download the application at this link, and submit it to TCCRI along with all required documents at P.O. Box 2659, Austin, Texas 78768 (Attention: Clements Legislative Study Program).
