Grants For Students
Binational Internship Program
Unique among among Fulbright programs worldwide, the Binational Internship program was created in 1996 to promote mutual understanding between the business communities in Mexico and U.S. . During a ten-month period each grantee interns at a company or organization. At the same time, grantees take graduate classes at one of one of Mexico's most prestigious private universities, Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM), with a focus on international business.
The combination of both professional and academic components provides unique insight into the bilateral relationship. While the majority of placements are with for-profit companies, each year there may be opportunities to work in the nonprofit sector. COMEXUS is unable to guarantee placements in specific companies, sectors and/or industries.
In the last several years, COMEXUS has placed grantees in the following companies: Casa Dragones, Ashoka, Scotiabank, Endeavor, Asociación Mexicana para las Naciones Unidas, Angel Ventures, Collective Academy, MásNegocio and Volaris among others. Please note that the list of participating companies and NGOs is subject to change every year.
The commission follows the recommendations of both the Mexican government and the U.S. Embassy Travel Warnings when placing US Fulbright grantees in Mexico. This may mean that placement will be restricted in certain states or areas of Mexico depending upon these recommendations.
