Pionero Philanthropy is aware that many Master’s programs in the United States require the completion of an internship in order to be eligible for graduation. As such, we are more than happy to assist potential students with their completion of academic course credit through this research opportunity and can coordinate directly with academic advisors to ensure open communication and a task information delivery plan.

Additionally, for individuals not in need of academic course credit, Pionero Philanthropy’s Research Partnership Program provides the perfect opportunity for resume building. Pionero Philanthropy is happy to act as a professional reference after the completion of a successful partnership.


Pionero Philanthropy also partners directly with the institutions themselves. Pionero Philanthropy currently acts as a partner in the Connect Program at the University of Texas at Austin’s RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service through the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs.
