After you finish the interview process, the Puentes staff will collect your internship preferences and the internship sites’ preferences in order to determine matches.
Match and ACCEPTANCE
You will then be notified of the internship sites' decisions and if you have an internship match or matches. We will ask you to accept or decline the internship placement within a certain time frame, usually one to two weeks.
Upon accepting an internship, Puentes will formally confirm the internship assignment. We will send to you by email a link to a Commitment Form, which we ask you to complete together with your internship supervisor. The Commitment Form includes information on expected dates for the internship and anticipated project work and outcomes. We want to ensure that your work plan and internship expectations are clearly defined in advance of your arrival so that you can hit the ground running when you land here and dive into your internship experience.
We will also give you access to the Puentes Participant Portal with detailed pre-departure information and next steps to help prepare you for your time abroad. Prior to your departure, we will finalize all of your program plans and share an arrival agenda for you.
