Background

The Canada-Mexico Awards – Graduate Student Exchange Program – are designed to strengthen cooperation between Canadian and Mexican post-secondary institutions. Canada is offering 10 graduate student exchange scholarships to Mexican students pursuing their graduate studies in Mexico and wishing to come to Canada for 5 to 6 months to pursue research or course work as part of their master or doctoral program.

Structure

The Canada-Mexico awards are facilitated through institutional collaborations and student exchange agreements between Canadian and Mexican post-secondary institutions. Within this framework, scholarship recipients remain registered as full-time students in their home institutions to which they return to receive credit for the studies/research undertaken while in Canada. Institutional collaborations include agreements to waive tuition fees and to facilitate accreditation of studies.

Award duration

The Canada-Mexico Award Graduate Student Exchange Program is for 5 to 6 months and is not renewable.

Award value

Graduate Student Exchanges (GSEP) are hosted by Canadian institutions for a period of five to six months and provides to $10,000 to cover transportation, living and other related expenses during the students’ stay in Canada. This amount is not taxable.

Application process

Students interested in this scholarship program should contact their home institution to make their interest known, and to find out if there is an institutional collaboration or exchange agreement with a Canadian institution. The Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) provides a database of international exchange agreements which, while not exhaustive, does provide a list of some existing agreements. 

In order to apply, the student’s professor/institution should contact the Canadian counterpart and arrange for the Canadian institution to submit an application on the student’s behalf.
For the exchange to take place, an inter-institutional agreement is desirable. However, where no agreement yet exists, applications, which may result in a new collaboration between professors from a Canadian and foreign university, will be considered.
Candidates must apply for Study Permit (for course work) or a Work Permit (for research) in order to ensure a smooth entry at the Canadian border and to receive the funds.
