The ConTex office was established by the University of Texas System to support a program of cooperation with Mexico's National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT). This new program will expand current collaboration with CONACYT and many other first-rate academic institutions in Mexico.
ConTex will be a model of international collaboration connecting Texas with one of the most important trade partners of the United States. It will support bilateral efforts to enhance academic and research cooperation between Texas and Mexico.
ConTex Doctoral Fellowships
A key feature of the program is 5-years of support for Ph.D. students. Funding for selected Ph.D. students will include tuition, a monthly stipend of $1,100, and health insurance costs for up to five years – four years from CONACYT and one year of funding provided by the UT System. Eligible students from Mexico must first apply and be admitted to a UT Ph.D. program and then can contact ConTex and apply for funding. Preference may be given to high priority areas of study and a supplement to the stipend may be needed depending on college/school requirements.
