We invite organizations and offices in Washington, D.C. and in Austin, Texas to consider becoming an internship site supervisor. This is a meaningful opportunity to share your knowledge with Aggie Interns in the Agricultural and Natural Resources Policy (ANRP) Internship Program at Texas A&M University.
Internship opportunities are to be on-site (an intern physically works at your organization) experiences based predominately in Washington, D.C. and Austin, Texas.
We are looking for internship opportunities and site supervisors in Washington D.C., in all types of public policy organizations, as we have students in our nation’s capital and around the world available to work with you. The program does request that interns be compensated for their service to your office.
The site supervisor shall be someone in a professional position (e.g. a volunteer coordinator, office manager, archivist, etc.) at the internship site who is able to make commitments on behalf of the organization and who will work closely with the Aggie intern during the course of the internship, providing sound, professional judgment and mentoring in the skill areas assigned. Our students are eager to participate in internships to help them understand the changing nature of their future profession and gain valuable real-world work experience while earning course credit. Both students and supervisors benefit from this mutual learning experience.
Program staff reserve the right to deny approval or revoke an approved site and their internship opportunity should they feel, at any time, that the professional qualifications of the site supervisor are not sufficient or the internship does not provide learning experiences at a professional level. Student feedback for sites and site supervisors is collected every semester and a review of sites is made as conditions warrant.
