Scholarships for Wixárika University Students
Wixarika youth represent a bright future that incorporates traditional and local knowledge with technical skills learned in different institutions of higher education. Since 2018, the Wixarika Research Center along with the International Friendship Club have given scholarships to Wixarika students studying a variety of careers like agronomy, law, business administration and medicine. Each year we offer scholarships to support different needs that include school materials, transportation, food and internet. Students accepted into our program will receive the scholarship each year until they graduate.
This program is a tangible expression of support for the Indigenous population and is rooted in the belief that equipping more Wixaritari with university level education is a strategic way to ensure their communities have access to skills required to defend their cultural integrity and political autonomy.
