Exciting, Paid Internships for College Students

Take Care of Texas

The TCEQ is now accepting applications for the Mickey Leland Environmental Internship Program. An internship will help undergraduate and graduate students learn about environmental issues, build marketable skills, and gain professional experience. Students will complete a full-time, paid internship over the summer with an assignment at the TCEQ, another state agency, or a private sector company in Texas.

The MLEIP has a competitive application process—in 2017, over 600 students from across the nation applied. Complete application packages received by the March 9, 2018 deadline have the best opportunity for review and selection by sponsors/managers. Incomplete application packages may not be considered. Learn more about the internship program.
