Graduate Programs in Mexico and the US

Sep 28, 2010 by Juliana Leticia Moreno

Program Description:

This program seeks to promote the development of cooperation networks between Mexican and U.S. higher education institutions. Specifically, it intends to aid the development of joint graduate programs that allow the mobility of students and faculty between institutions of both countries. With regard to the mobility of graduate students, the goal is that awardees take courses during their stay in the other country that are subsequently credited in their home country as part of their graduate program. Another goal is to promote student mobility economic schemes where the students pay tuition in their home institutions and not in the host university.

Candidate Profile:

a) Mexican or U.S. students enrolled in a graduate program in their country of origin that contemplates the mobility of students to another country during the course of the graduate studies. Awardees will take courses in the host country that will be credited towards their graduate degree in their country of origin.
b) Mexican or US professors who participate in joint graduate programs between institutions of both countries. During the exchange semester, these professors may teach courses in graduate programs or carry out activities relating to the development of new courses or graduate programs between Mexican and U.S. institutions.

Graduate Program:

The graduate programs (Master’s Degree or Doctorate) that qualify for this program are those programs in Mexico or the U.S. that are either offered jointly by institutions of both countries or allow students to study a semester in an institution of the other country that has signed an agreement for such purpose. As part of any of these arrangements, the agreements signed by both institutions must contemplate 1) that the courses the students take can be credited in the home university and, 2) that tuition is paid in the home university.
