Texas Public Policy Foundation Internship Program

The Texas Public Policy Foundation’s internship program provides undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to enter the public policy field and gain valuable public policy experience at one of the nation's leading free-market think tanks. The program offers individuals the chance to engage in hands-on projects with the Foundation’s professional staff in various fields.

The TPPF internship program is designed to be as educational as possible.  Interns will attend staff meetings, meet policymakers, and engage in regular policy discussions.  In addition to their assigned center, interns will hear presentations from each of our policy centers, and from speakers from other areas of public policy such as legislators, state agency members, lobbyists, etc.  Interns also participate in a series called “Thinking Economically,” presented by Vice President Bill Peacock, on the economic principles at work in free-market policy research.  Finally, at the conclusion of their internship, each intern will give an oral presentation and participate in exit interviews about their experience.

Operations interns will work with the Foundation’s operations team to learn how to effectively manage the day-to-day business needs of a thriving non-profit organization.  Responsibilities include banking, mail, phones, and planning assistance. 

Development interns will work with the Foundation’s development team to learn the techniques of fundraising in the competitive non-profit world. They will help plan and participate in development events and solicitations, help write and distribute development materials, and talk with donors.

Media interns will work with the Foundation’s communications staff in the writing and editing of press releases, commentaries, and other media products. They will also help track the Foundation’s media hits and appearances in the news.

Policy interns will be assigned to one of the Foundation’s policy Centers and work directly with a center director or policy analyst. Their work will consist of researching and writing based on the objectives of the policy center and current events with the end goal of crafting works to be published with the Foundation.

Applicants should demonstrate a commitment to free-market principles, strong writing and communications skills, and a general understanding of government and the political process. As well, prospective interns should be entrepreneurially-minded and possess the ability to undertake research, writing, and administrative projects.
