Political Internship Program (PIP)
The Taiwanese American Citizens League (TACL) Summer Political Internship Program, established in 1992, places college students in the offices of state and federal elected officials.
Interns work to promote Taiwanese culture, heritage and identity while gaining a greater understanding of the American political system through active, hands-on involvement.
All college students interested in Taiwanese American issues may apply. Interns gain valuable, working knowledge through assignments in political offices located throughout the Greater Los Angeles area, Orange County, San Francisco Bay Area, and Washington DC. In addition to working in their offices, interns visit top legislators in an intense lobbying trip, attend community events, participate in leadership development workshops, and various other activities.
