TRPI’s focus on Mexico
The Tomás Rivera Policy Institute, housed at the University of Southern California in the heart of Los Angeles is the nation’s oldest and most well-recognized think tank on Latino issues. While the Institute’s mission has widened over the years, the Institute maintains a research focus on Mexico as well as close connections with Latino civil society organizations on both sides of the border. Additionally, TRPI supports future leaders and scholars on issues facing Mexico and U.S.-Mexico relations by offering grants to USC students for on-the-ground research and travel in Mexico. The research grants are awarded in memory of Harry Pachon, Latino scholar and advocate and former director of the Tomás Rivera Policy Institute, and with the support of the Latino Alumni Association.
