  • one academic term at the undergraduate or graduate level;
  • up to twelve months for graduate-level research and postdoctoral fellowships;
  • one-year specializations;
  • two-year scholarships for Master’s degrees; and
  • three or four-year scholarships for Doctorates, including medical specializations and sub-specializations.

Canadians must apply to one of the participating post-secondary institutions (Spanish only) listed on Mexico’s Agencia Mexicana de Cooperación Internacional para el Desarrollowebsite.
