The Archer Fellowship Program provides the opportunity to work in our nation’s capital while making progress toward a UT degree. Home to many government, media, and cultural institutions, Washington, D.C., offers unparalleled opportunities for career development and cultural enrichment. Moreover, the program’s unique combination of academic and experiential learning allows students to combine their intellectual and professional interests in a challenging academic environment.
Archer Fellows study and intern in Washington, D.C., during a fall or spring semester. Past internship placements include the White House, the Supreme Court, the World Bank, National Public Radio, and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), among many others.
The Archer Fellowship Program was founded to support qualified UT System undergraduates in the pursuit of noble public service in the tradition of the program’s namesake, Congressman Bill Archer, who was elected to serve the 7th District (Texas) in 1971. Beginning in January 1995, he served as the Chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, and he remained at the helm until his retirement from Congress in 2001. Congressman Archer remains very active in mentoring Archer Fellows.
The Archer Fellowship Program is a joint effort of the UT System Office of Federal Relations, the Archer Center, and the nine participating UT System academic campuses.
