Internships at the Center for the United States and Mexico

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