(Sept. 24, 2012) -- The UTSA Honors College is now recruiting students to apply for the 2013 UTSA Legislative Scholars Program. The deadline to apply is Oct. 15.

Created in September 2004 as a collaborative initiative between state Rep. Ruth Jones McClendon and UTSA, the program coordinated by the Honors College provides undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to serve as interns in the Texas House of Representatives during regular legislative sessions.

The 2013 UTSA Legislative Scholars will receive a stipend of $10,000 while enrolling for academic credit through internship or independent study for the spring 2013 semester at UTSA.

To be eligible for the program students must have completed at least 60 undergraduate hours and be enrolled for the 2012 fall semester at UTSA. Students from any academic major can apply. Exceptional skills in writing, composition and computer literacy are required.
