Exchange Scientists

The primary purpose of the U.S.-Mexico Training Exchange Scientist Program is to promote technology transfer between the two nations by training Mexican professionals in advanced science techniques at The University of Arizona. Fellowships are available for Mexican graduate students seeking to enhance their knowledge and expertise specifically in environmental science, environmental engineering, or environmental toxicology. This scientist training is expected to enhance human capital to further stimulate the environmental science movement in Mexico.
