IME Scholarship Support
The UCLA Blum Center, together with the Center for Mexican Studies and the Center for the Study of International Migration, announces its support of scholarships to advance immigrant relations. The scholarships will be awarded to students working on infographics providing messaging on how-to live, work and play outside of Mexico and will be targeted to Spanish-speaking immigrants. The scholarships will become available from the sponsoring agency, the Institute for Mexicans Abroad (or IME, Instituto de los Mexicanos en el Exterior).
IME was formed in 1990 by the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs to promote the involvement of Mexican communities abroad and provide information and services in the areas of health, education, culture and community organization. The goal of IME is to promote strategies, integrate programs, collect proposals and recommendations from the communities, their members, their organizations and advisory bodies designed to raise the living standards of Mexican communities abroad as well as executing the directives emanating from the National Council for Mexican Communities Abroad.
