The Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation (AMEXCID) has issued an invitation for foreign citizens to apply to the 2019 Mexican Government Scholarship Program for International Students.

Awards are for the pursuit of specialisations, master's degrees or doctorates, graduate research and postdoctoral fellowships, or undergraduate or graduate-level academic mobility programmes.

AMEXCID says on its website that the scholarships are offered to more than 180 countries through a series of bilateral conventions, multilateral programmes and special agreements. More than 70 Mexican institutions participate, and all offer academic programmes registered with the National Council for Science and Technology as National Quality Graduate Programs. These programmes demonstrate the progress made by Mexico in the sciences and humanities.

By offering the scholarships, AMEXCID says, Mexico is strengthening its role as an actor with global responsibility and renews its commitment to cooperation programmes that help create highly-skilled human capital.

“The presence in Mexico of international students, academics and scientists helps build permanent bridges of dialogue that enrich the long-term foreign policy agenda through contributions of exceptional value for the country and its partners abroad. In addition, the Mexican institutions and academic community benefit from the increased internationalisation,” it said.

Applications are being accepted until September 15 at 15:00 (local time in Mexico City). Awards are expected to be announced on December 5 through the Mexican diplomatic missions abroad.
