U.S.-Panama Innovation & Competitiveness Initiative
Internship Training Program
This honors program, based on the vision of the Secretaría Nacional de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación, promotes access of world-class knowledge and advanced global skills by providing a platform for structured discussion. It promotes local leadership through the ideals of responsible public service.
University and college students participating in this program will have an opportunity to interact with other students from the United States and around the world, sharing ideas and experiences among politicians, policymakers and experts. Participants will work in different private and public sector organizations located in Washington, D.C., with our partnering internship sites guaranteeing 80 percent of meaningful tasks, and limiting the administrative tasks to no more than 20 percent of the participant’s time.
The additional components of the Training Program will facilitate the acquisition of critical knowledge regarding innovation and competitiveness.
Eligible students can apply for a full scholarship offered by SENACYT. These scholarships are competitive.
