Mexico has in recent years become a world leader in the areas of energy reform and climate change.

MIT-Mexico - Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara Seed Fund

The MIT-Mexico - Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara Seed Fund supports new collaborations between faculty and research scientists at MIT and their counterparts at the Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara. 

Through an annual call for proposals, the fund primarily supports travel costs for exchange between a team at MIT and colleagues at the Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara​. The Mexican colleague(s) must be identified in the proposal. The maximum award is $25,000.

Priority will be given to projects that:

  • propose a balanced exchange between the MIT and Mexican participants
  • demonstrate complementarity between the MIT and Mexican teams
  • include student participation

The MIT-Mexico Seed Funds are a part of MISTI Global Seed Funds. All general MISTI Global Seed Funds criteria, application and evaluation procedures apply.
