​​​What is MEXAUSTIN?

Wanting to invest in their citizens living abroad in the United States, the Mexican government created an academic scholarship to promote education in the greater community.  The Consulate General of Mexico in Austin collaborates with Foundation Communities to administer the MexAustin scholarship. 

The goal of our partnership is to support the next generation of Latinx students to excel in higher education. We recognize there may be many barriers that a student may have to overcome while on their path to achieving their higher education credential.  

​It is our hope that with the support of local community leaders, the next generation of Latinx scholars will be equipped to bring about positive change to our communities both domestic and abroad. ​​ 

​No dejes para mañana lo que puedas hacer hoy.

Financial Need Should not stop you from obtaining higher education
