Fall 2023 Study Abroad in Mexico Program: Open to DACA recipients!

The California-Mexico Studies Center, a community-based California non-profit educational and cultural organization that is not affiliated with a university, is hosting a study abroad program specifically for DACA recipients to go to Mexico this Fall 2023! This program is open to DACA recipients residing in any state in the U.S. Please note that you do not have to be a college student to apply.

The program will last from September 1, 2023 to January 31, 2024. Both Latinx and non-Latinx students are encouraged to apply. Students who are not proficient in Spanish can have access to interpretation and translation services during their time in Mexico for an additional cost. Applications will be reviewed on a first come first serve basis, so please apply as soon as possible.

From the Center: “This unique model will allow for both Dreamers & Mexican-American/Chicano students and young professionals to discover their cultural roots, reaffirm their identity, improve their Spanish, reconnect with their families, and pursue higher education opportunities in Mexico. This program has been designed specifically for Spanish-speaking faculty, college students, labor union and community leaders, religious groups and Dreamers from anywhere in the U.S., to provide them an independent travel-study experience and flexible academic programs from 1 week to 4 months, based at the educational facilities of our partner institutions or at the CMSC’s Mexico Study Abroad Institute (MSAI) in Mexico City.”

All individuals with DACA will be provided assistance to apply and secure USCIS Advance Parole travel authorization for educational purposes through their program.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Be 21 years old or older at the time of travel in September 2023
  • Must have active DACA status with an expiration date after February 29, 2024
  • Have a valid passport from your country of origin that is active through February 29, 2024
