Carlos Slim Scholars from Mexico

GW's Carlos Slim Scholars Program, established in October 2012 with a gift from the Fundación Carlos Slim, awards full, merit-based tuition scholarships to top Mexican students enrolled in two-year master’s degree programs in engineering and international affairs. 

Under the guidance of academic advisors and professional mentors, Slim Scholars make connections with public and private sector institutions, interact with influential political and thought leaders, and engage in hands-on learning through internships, travel opportunities, and culturally enriching activities. The goal of this special partnership is to inform and empower future leaders of Mexico to bring about positive, lasting change that will improve the quality of life for all citizens.
