SOUTHCOM

In partnership with the Kimberly Green Latin America and Caribbean Center, we have established a local, unpaid internship program with United States Southern Command, located in Doral, Florida. USSOUTHCOM is the administrative and leadership arm of the combined combatant command of US military operations responsible for South America, Central America and the Caribbean.

This program is now available to a limited number of students. Individuals from many disciplines will be welcomed at USSOUTHCOM – including Political Science, History, Sociology, International Relations, Business, Computer Science, Public Administration, Public Health, Public Relations, Law and Criminal Justice. Interested students should contact Assistant Director Hector Cadavid or Director Brian Fonseca, at jgi@fiu.edu , to express interest. Applicants to the internship program will be required to submit two letters of recommendation from faculty members and attend an interview at the Gordon Institute (LC 220 Modesto Maidique Campus). In order to be referred to USSOUTHCOM an applicant must be a citizen of the USA (dual citizenship not permitted).
