Unimex Announces New Program Offering Grants of Up to 60% to Students

New grant program makes it easier for undergraduates, graduates, and professional students to take advantage of top-quality education at any of four campuses, Unimex reports

Unimex, the Universidad Mexicana, now offers grants of up to 60% of the cost of attendance. With a main campus in Cuautitlán Izcalli and satellite campuses in Naucalpan, Veracruz, and the Polanco neighborhood of Mexico City, Unimex is one of the country's leading institutes of higher education. Unimex offers undergraduate, professional, and graduate education, with a wide variety of degree programs, or "licenciaturas," making it easy for students to find a perfect match for their goals and situations.

"Even with the cost of tertiary education climbing steadily year after year, there are some good ways of keeping costs down," said Unimex representative Edwin Martinez, "At Unimex, we're proud to now offer grants of up to 60% to our students. Cutting down greatly on the costs of getting a world-class education, these new grants are opening up a wealth of new opportunities to those who study at Unimex. We invite anyone interested to stop by our website to read up on how to take advantage."

As Mexico has developed in so many ways in recent decades, one of the most notable developments has been in the country's education system. Total enrollment in schools in Mexico ballooned from just over 3.25 million students in 1950, according to World Education News & Reviews, to over 28 million in 2000, with equally impressive growth estimated since.

Twenty-five years ago, only 15 percent of college-age Mexicans were actually enrolled in institutions providing tertiary education, while nearly a third undertake such studies today. While these advances have produced many benefits, they have also greatly taxed a public education system that has not generally been provided with the resources it needed to keep up.

Because of this, the country has, like others throughout the Americas, seen a dramatic surge in new private universities over the last couple of decades. With its first campus opened in Cuautitlán Izacalli in 1991, Unimex was one of the pioneers in this field, offering professional Masters, or "maestrias," degrees to students at a time when public alternatives were already becomng overwhelmed.

A first satellite campus followed in the municipality of Naucalpan several years later, with still another new campus opening nearby in the historic Polanco district of Mexico City not long after. Together with the Unimex campus in Veracruz that has since opened, these four locations give students from Mexico and elsewhere access to valuable, top-quality educational opportunities that serve them well for the rest of their lives.

In extending grants of up to 60% to qualifying undergraduate and postgraduate students, or "posgrados," Unimex will make these important options even more accessible. Those interested can learn more at the Unimex website.
