The Mayor’s Intern Fellows Program (MIFP) is an eight-week, paid summer internship program designed and implemented by Education is Freedom. MIFP introduces Dallas public high school students to careers and employment opportunities in industries and companies where they have expressed interest. Modeled after the prestigious White House Fellows, MIFP prepares motivated students to become the leaders of tomorrow.

In 2012, the Mayor's Intern Fellows Program continued with the induction of Mayor Mike Rawlings. Mayor Rawlings quickly adopted the program, as it perfectly aligned with his vision for both education and economic growth in the City of Dallas. To provide as many opportunities for students in the City of Dallas, Mayor Rawlings expanded the program to include all Dallas public and charter schools. Under his leadership, the Mayor's Intern Fellows Program is serving most students and companies in program history with 350 internships, 40 participating schools and 218 companies and non-prots. Mayor Rawlings' goal is to continue to provide more opportunities for scholars to gain valuable hands-on experiences that can ultimately prepare the future workforce for the City of Dallas.
