The next cycle of this seed fund will open September 12, 2023. The deadline will be December 13, 2023.

MIT-Mexico Instituto Politécnico Nacional Seed Fund​

Through an annual call for proposals, the fund primarily supports travel costs for exchange between a team at MIT and colleagues at The Instituto Politécnico Nacional.

The Mexican colleague(s) must be identified in the proposal.

 All general MISTI Global Seed Funds criteria, application, and evaluation procedures apply.


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
  • involve undergraduate and graduate students
