Hispanic Caucus Institute Internship Program

Jesus Vazquez

 A Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) senior is getting a first-hand look at our nation’s government as a participant in this summer’s Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) Internship Program.

Jesus Vazquez, a TAMIU senior Systems Engineering major, is interning in the office of Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.

Vazquez is one of only 45 students selected nationwide to live in Washington, D.C. and intern in a congressional office for two months. He will also participate in CHCI’s nationally renowned leadership program, meet with national public and private sector leaders, and engage in national policy discussions.

Each year, the CHCI Internship Program selects promising Hispanic college students from across the country, offering selected interns unmatched professional and learning opportunities by exposing them to the legislative process and strengthening their leadership skills.
