Financial Need Should not stop you from obtaining higher education

IME Becas / Scholarships

Seeing a need to invest in their citizens living abroad in the United States, the Mexican government began to invest in their citizen’s education by creating an academic scholarship.   Wanting to partner with a local nonprofit, the Mexican Consulate sought out Foundation Communities to partner with because of their stellar reputation in the community and their vast work in college support services.

​The goal of the MexAustin Scholarship is to see the next generation of Latino and Latina students excel in reaching their higher education goals. The scholarship is open to all students of Latino heritage regardless of their status in the United States.  We recognize there may be many barriers that a student would have to overcome while on their road to seeking higher education.  It is our hope that with the support of Foundation Communities and the Mexican Consulate the next generation of Latino and Latina scholars will be equipped to bring about positive change to our communities both domestic and abroad. 

Financial burden should not be a reason to stop seeking education, that is why The MexAustin Scholarship is for you.
