The Public Education Secretariat (SEP) and the Foreign Relations Secretariat (SRE) launched the Proyecta 100,000 United States summons, in order to give 3,115 scholarships to young people to study the English language.
In a statement, the SEP said that the summons is a project created by the SEP’s National Coordination of Scholarships for Higher Education and the SRE’s Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation. It began on May 20 and will continue until June 5.
The summons aims to promote student international mobility, so that young people can travel during the second half of 2016. The beneficiaries will be able to study English as a second language in intensive programs at certified centers of U.S. higher education institutions.
The summons is the result of the agreement signed by President Enrique Peña Nieto and U.S. President Barack Obama during the Bilateral Forum on Higher Education, Innovation and Research (FOBESII) in 2013. The agreement promotes mutual understanding between the two countries through student mobility and academic, research and innovation exchange programs.
The beneficiaries will receive 91,000 pesos ($4,921) to cover the costs established by the call and the training which will take place from October to November 2016, with a duration of 96 hours distributed in four weeks.
