About the Lubbock Internship
To accommodate students who are unable to travel or Washington D.C. or would prefer to gain internship experience while continuing regular classes at Texas Tech, the Government and Public Service Internship currently offers one internship in Lubbock. The internship is available to Texas Tech students during the summer, fall and spring semesters. The internship is part-time, designed to work around the student’s academic schedule, and the intern will receive a scholarship in an appropriate amount to defray the costs associated with the internship.
The intern must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 hours at Texas Tech University while interning in Lubbock. As such, the intern is a full-time Texas Tech student. Before starting the Lubbock internship, the student will work with his or her academic department to gain academic credit for his or her internship experience. The credit is earned through the intern’s work at the member’s office as well as through various assignments throughout the semester.
To participate in the program, it is preferred that undergraduate students have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 and have completed a minimum of 60 semester credit hours before the semester they wish to participate in the internship. Graduate students with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 are also eligible to participate.
No particular major or disciplinary background is required to apply for an internship. Students will acquire skills and experience through the program that will serve them well no matter what career or field of study they choose.
