Latin American Studies Internship
The Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies (LLILAS) is a multidisciplinary institute that integrates several centers and programs devoted to promote interest in the region. LLILAS is the oldest Latin American studies program in the United States and one of the best worldwide. This is a very vibrant and fast paced environment where we have the opportunity to interact with foreign students, Latin American visiting professors, government officials, politicians and private sector representatives.
Plan II offers an internship program at the the Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies. The internship would be a great opportunity for those students interested pursuing graduate degrees or working in Latin American affairs; international public policy, international education as well as in any Social Sciences discipline. The position is not benefits-eligible, but there is a stipend of $1500 per semester, for which the intern is expected to put in a 10-hour work week. Interns will have the opportunity to get familiar with the work of multiple offices/programs within LLILAS as well as a broad range of international initiatives organized by our Institute. Depending on specific background or skills, some interns may be assigned to particular LLILAS offices/programs.
Note: Students must be enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours to eligible for the stipend. internship positions are awarded for fall and may be extended through the spring semester each year pending performance evaluation in the fall.
