Students are encouraged to submit applications for Mexican Government Scholarships. The scholarships can be used to pursue a master’s or doctoral degree in Mexico. Through a number of bilateral conventions, multilateral initiatives, and unique agreements, the scholarships are made available to more than 180 countries.
More than 70 universities in Mexico take part, and each of them offers academic programs that have been registered as National Quality Graduate Programs with CONACYT, the country’s council for science and technology.
