February 16, 2014

The Mexico State government and the state Family Development Agency (DIF) last week presented the Disabled Scholarship Program, according to a state government press release.

The program is said to help 12,000 disabled students cover the costs of education from primary to university levels. Each of the scholarships will pay a fixed monthly amount for 11 months. Primary school scholarship recipients will receive 300 pesos per month, middle-school students will receive 400 pesos per month and university students will receive 700 pesos per month.

The press release said that to qualify for the scholarship, one must have some sort of medically-certified disability, be currently enrolled in the Mexico State education system or in a university that has a satellite campus in Mexico State, be born in Mexico State or a bordering state and not have any other public or private scholarships.

Those who would meet this criteria and would like to apply for the scholarship should visit for a downloadable submission form, as well as further instructions and locations of where the form can be submitted. All applicants must provide proof of enrollment for one year of school and a report of earnings from their parent or guardian.

Further questions can be answered by calling the Education Secretariat’s Scholarship Department at (722) 213 9063 or the DIF Disability Department at (722) 217 2855.
