Internships at the Mexico Center

The Baker Institute offers an internship program designed to provide Rice University undergraduate students with public policy experience and exposure to a nonprofit think tank environment.

The Mexico Center offers Rice undergraduate students research or administrative internship opportunities. Research interns work directly with institute fellows and scholars on critical policy issues in Mexico. Interns work with senior staff in a professional office environment, providing essential support in a security-sensitive setting.
