Request for Proposals: Mexican Government Scholarship Program in U.S. for Language Education and Related Study

The Mexican government announced the 2015 Request for Proposals for U.S. university participation in Proyecta 100,000. This program provides Mexican government-sponsored scholarships for Mexican students to study English and pursue certain other short-term academic work in the United States. Proposals are due February 20.

Last year, through this program approximately 7,500 Mexican students obtained scholarships to complete a course of English as a Second Language. These students were placed across the country at 142 U.S. institutions that applied to host them. Proyecta 100,000 aims to have 100,000 Mexican students studying in the United States by 2018 as part of the Bilateral Forum on Higher Education, Innovation and Research (FOBESII), initiated in 2013 by Presidents Obama and Peña Nieto.

Proyecta 100,000’s goal for 2015 is to send 46,000 Mexican students to the United States. To achieve this goal, the program has broadened its scope to include: “English as a Second Language courses, professional/technical English courses, English for academic purposes, short-term research programs, pre-master’s programs, certificate programs on specific areas (energy, engineering, environment, health, ICTs, manufacturing, among others), and short-professional stays.”
