Mexican partnership

Ph.D. students will arrive on campus this fall

Tufts President Lawrence S. Bacow has signed a two-year agreement with Mexico’s National Commission for Science and Technology that will strengthen ties between Tufts and the Mexican government, foster a graduate student exchange program and expand the university’s relationships with Mexico’s educators, government and businesses.

Starting this fall, Tufts will host students from Mexico to pursue Ph.D.s in the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences, the School of Engineering, the Fletcher School and the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. The Mexican science commission will pay the students’ tuition for the first two years, and Tufts will support students’ remaining years of study

The agreement was signed in a ceremony that coincided with a meeting of Tufts’ International Board of Overseers in Mexico City in November.
