Notre Dame strengthens ties with Mexico


Colleen Wilcox | October 29, 2020

The University of Notre Dame and partners are now accepting applications for the Becas Fulbright-García Robles COMEXUS Mexico Studies Chair, which funds a senior scholar from a Mexican university to be in residence for a semester.

As part of the new program, Notre Dame International has partnered with the Kellogg Institute for International Studies to bring social scientists and humanists to Notre Dame to teach courses about Mexico as a Kellogg Institute visiting fellow. The call for applications for fall 2021 runs through Nov. 25. The profile of this particular chair will focus on democracy and development.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with NDI and COMEXUS on this distinctive research opportunity,” said Donald Stelluto, executive director for the Kellogg Institute. “The Kellogg Institute has long valued and fostered collaborative research. This opportunity to welcome a senior scholar from Mexico will strengthen the institute’s academic and collegial networks in Latin America and present a new avenue for us and our visiting scholars to focus together on the study of critical questions around democracy and development in Mexico.”

The program, which launched in 2016, aims to create and strengthen ties between U.S. academic and higher education institutions in Mexico, as well as promote greater knowledge of Mexico in the U.S.
