Mexican Students-FUNED

On January 27th, 2020, McGill signed an agreement with the Fundacion Mexicana para la Educacion, la Tecnologia y la Ciencia (FUNED) to co-sponsor Mexican students enrolled in a Master's non-thesis program at McGill in the fields of Management, Social Sciences and Economics. The agreement aims at attracting top Mexican students to pursue graduate studies at McGill.

Value & Duration

FUNED will provide up to 15,000 USD for tuition, fees and living expenses. The amount provided to each prospective student will be based on the results of FUNED's financial needs evaluation of the student.

McGill will provide the following, as long as the scholarship from FUNED is still valid:

  • Non-thesis Master's: $4,000 per year as tuition support, for a maximum of two years;
  • MBA: 20% of the current tuition rate for the totality of the program.

Funding is provided for a maximum period of two (2) years.

Deadlines

March 27th and June 19th, 2020 (See full calendar in General Call for Applications)

The website will be updated when 2021 competitions open.

Please note that FUNED holds a joint call with CONACyT, and FUNED recipients may obtain further support from CONACyT. Students applying through FUNED for a thesis-based Master's are encouraged to apply to CONACyT as well as they would be eligible for the agreement with that agency.
