As one of Texas A&M University’s premier leadership and development opportunities, the Public Policy Internship Program (PPIP) provides a unique opportunity for students to combine academics with policy knowledge and professional work experience.

Through PPIP, undergraduate and graduate students actively participate in the policy process at the state, national or international level. Our credit-bearing internship program is offered year-round, allowing students to participate in the fall, spring or summer semesters. Whether interning in Washington, D.C., Austin, Texas or one of our various European locations, students walk away from their internship semester with a better understanding of their individual strengths and professional goals.

Most importantly, our experienced staff works with students every step of the way to help provide a meaningful learning experience. Interested in more information? Take a look around the website and join our mailing list for application reminders.
