Internships

Legislative Internship Program (LIP)

LIP students work 9 hours per week in the offices of federal, state and local legislators or think-tank/policy agencies.

These groups are actively involved in Tampa Bay's economic development, transportation, environmental protection, education, health, social welfare and/or public finance. The LIP seminar discusses internship experiences, issues facing Tampa Bay and policy initiatives created to solve them.

Each student will be carefully matched with an elected official or organization according to their interests to provide a meaningful learning experience. The students selected to participate in LIP will be awarded a $300 USF Alumni Association Scholarship.
