AUSTIN — Today, Texas Land Commissioner Dawn Buckingham, M.D. highlights the Texas General Land Office's (GLO) Summer Internship Program and the incredible opportunities for real-life work experience this program offers GLO's summer interns, including our amazing 2023 participants.

"As Land Commissioner, a mother, and a steward of Texas' precious School Fund, I believe to my core that high-quality education is an essential building block of our state's strong foundation," said Commissioner Buckingham. "The GLO's Summer Internship Program provides students with a critical part of their educations—real-life work experience—by teaching them professional skills that will be critical for their futures and careers. In return, the hard work each intern puts into their education helps support the mission of the GLO—to serve the State of Texas and its people. I would like to thank this year's interns for their excellence, and I look forward to the excitement and possibilities of next summer."

These are just a few of the awesome high points of the GLO's 2023 Summer Internship Program. Students who are interested in expanding their educations should send in their applications next summer for a chance to work with the oldest state agency in Texas while giving back to their communities.
