Internships

Beyond the classroom, the U.S.-Mexico Network helps students with a particular interest in Mexico, the United States, or the bilateral relationship work for a semester or a summer as an intern in organizations related to their interests.  Since 2009, the Network has helped place dozens of students in internships at the Consulate General of Mexico in Los Angeles, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Americas Program, in Washington, DC, the American Chamber of Commerce in Mexico City, and the Mexican Embassy, Washington DC (Mexican citizens only).

If you are interested in such an internship, contact us.
