IME Becas Program Description:
The Institute of Mexicans Abroad, (Instituto de Mexicanos en el Exterior), in collaboration with the CUNY Institute of Mexican Studies, calls for applications for a scholarship for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled or accepted in the City University of New York. The scholarship program seeks to award full tuition for an academic year for undergraduate students and full tuition for one semester for graduate students. The scholarship program recognizes, rewards and promotes academic excellence and community service in the Mexican community. Students not currently matriculated in CUNY may apply, but funds will not be disbursed until the student is matriculated.
Scholarship recipients will be expected to complete internships for a total of 15 hours per week during one semester or 10 hours per week throughout the academic year, in an affiliated nonprofit institution.
Recipients will be selected based on academic merit, financial need, and commitment to service to the Mexican community.
Faculty are encouraged to promote this opportunity to eligible students and aid in securing matching funds for the scholarship fund from their campus.
