Harris Fellows offers UH undergraduate students the opportunity to work as full-time interns in Harris County government offices during the summer semester. Hobby School internship programs have a proven record of leading to gainful employment.
Students will work full-time in Harris County government offices. The opportunity will provide students with outside-of-the-classroom experience in the real-world day-to-day operations within the nation`s third-largest county.
Although students will complete a term paper relevant to their internships for academic credit, the overall focus of the program is to immerse them in the workings of county government so they can develop professional skills, gain applied research expertise, polish interpersonal abilities, and build a professional network.
