In 2018, in conjunction with the International Friendship Fund and the Proyecto de Educación Comunitaria/Rotary Club of Puerto Vallarta (VCEP), the Wixarika Research Center created a scholarship fund for Wixarika university students. The goal of the scholarship is to support students with the different costs related to attending a university, such as school materials and books, food, housing, and transport. In 2018, we provided six scholarships and in 2019, we were happy to support 13 students who represent different Wixarika communities, attend distinct universities and study a diversity of degrees including medicine, law, education, and engineering.

Eligibility:

  • Must be Wixárika
  • Must be 18 years or older
  • Must be enrolled in an accredited university in Mexico and must have completed two semesters of study.
