Meredith College has received a grant from IME Becas (Institute for Mexicans Abroad) to provide scholarships to students of Mexican origin.
The grant to Meredith College provides financial support to allow continuing students, who are classified as seniors for the 2021 year, to persist to graduation.
Meredith’s grant proposals to provide scholarship funding for students of Mexican origin have been selected for funding through IME Becas multiple times since 2013-14.
“The Government of Mexico, through the Consulate General of Mexico in Raleigh, appreciates and acknowledges the interest of Meredith College to support the personal growth and development of outstanding Mexican students in North Carolina,” Consul General Claudia Velasco said in the grant acknowledgement letter.
Meredith College Provost Matthew Poslusny offered thanks on behalf of the College for this continuing support.
“IME Becas and the Consulate General of Mexico have supported Meredith’s students many times over the last several years,” Poslusny said. “We appreciate that they have chosen to continue this long standing partnership.”
The Consulate of Mexico in Raleigh, with the support of Mexico’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the Institute of Mexicans Abroad, supports academic institutions and non-profit organizations through the IME-Becas program. The program offers economic resources for Mexican students currently enrolled in an academic plan offered by non-profit organizations or academic institutions in the United States in higher education or adult education.
