<<Download 2013 Application Form Here>>

An Educational Research Fellowship has been established at the UTSA Mexico Center. This grant provides financial assistance for student/faculty research projects on Mexico-related topics that need time in Mexico to do field work or consultation at a university or research center. The student grants, funded by the "Carlos and Malú Alvarez International Study Fund," are worth $2,500. They pay for student travel to Mexico, food and lodging, local travel, and supplies/materials needed to complete the project (i.e. data sets for quantitative analysis, transcribers/recorders for fieldwork, etc.) To encourage teams of faculty and student researchers, the Mexico Center will supplement the student grant with $1,000 for faculty members working with students on the projects (one faculty member per project). The funds from the Mexico Center for the faculty member supervising the project will pay for faculty travel to Mexico, food and lodging, and supplies/materials needed to complete the project (faculty members will be reimursed upon their return from Mexico). The grant cannot support faculty research alone. Funding is contingent upon travel approval by the UTSA International Oversight Committee.


  • Current UTSA faculty members and currently enrolled students in any department or discipline.

  • Graduate and undergraduate students.

  • Previous recipients of the mexico Center fellowship are eligible to apply.

The Mexico Center requests copies of the finished work by the spring semester of 2015, a financial accounting of expenses, and a presentation of the research project at a UTSA Mexico Center Brown Bag lecture.

Proposals are due by Monday, December 02, 2013. Please send the completed application form (in word format) as an attachment to:
