Internships also provide opportunities to attend events within the Wilson Center and around Washington. Please note that this is an paid internship.


Applicants should possess an interest in, coursework related to, and/or experience working on Latin American issues, particularly political economy, trade, rule of law, migration, and social and economic development. Successful applicants should have strong research and writing skills, be detail-oriented, and able to work independently and collectively as part of group. Strong writing skills and language ability in both Spanish and English are preferred. Applicants must also be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program, a recent graduate (within the last year), and/or have been accepted to enter an advanced degree program.
