These areas include Mexico-related studies in all academic fields from the sciences to the arts, Latino Studies, and critical issues of common concern to the United States and Mexico. Proposals are encouraged for small, short-term, non-dissertation projects of one week to six months that will advance the applicants’ research training or academic understanding of their fields. Students seeking support for dissertation research should consider the UC MEXUS Dissertation Research competition.

However, please note that the selection process is based on the proposed project’s fit to UC MEXUS goals and, specifically, a thematic connection to Mexico, completely independent of the applicant’s nationality.
