TIP - Tallahassee Internship Program

The Tallahassee Internship Program (TIP)

The Bob Graham Center for Public Service at the University of Florida offers up to 15 internships through the Tallahassee Internship Program each spring to coincide with Florida’s legislative session. Placements include positions within the state legislature, the governor’s office and executive branch agencies, as well as various associations and lobbying organizations.

Since its beginning in 2009, over 170 students have served as interns in Tallahassee.

In addition to their intern duties, students take a course on Florida politics and attend a number of seminars (virtual or in-person) featuring major political and policy actors in the state. Students can earn additional academic credit through online courses or an independent study with UF faculty. If the internship is in person, interns are required to live and work in Tallahassee during the full duration of the legislative session.
