The Texas Legislative Internship Program – TLIP – is a premier internship program that introduces the best and brightest young Texans to the functions of government and the value of public service. The program, developed in 1990, is sponsored by Senator Rodney Ellis and administered by The Mickey Leland Center on World Hunger and Peace at Texas Southern University. Since its inception, more than 400 students accepted into the TLIP program have interned with members of the Texas Legislature, the Governor, Lieutenant Governor and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. This year, 63 interns are working in and around the state Capitol during the current legislative session.
