About the Program
The Thai American National Internship Program is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for Thai American students to gain a firsthand look at the American government and political system in Washington DC, and to reflect on the role they, as future leaders, might play in strengthening the U.S.-Thai relationship.
The program was founded in 2015 by the Royal Thai Embassy in Washington, DC and the US-Asia Institute.
