This summer, eight students from Guadalajara’s ITESO university will travel to the University of Central Arkansas, as part of the 100,000 Strong in the Americas initiative.
According to a press release, 10-15 undergraduate students from each institution will study at the respective partner’s campus during the summer term. The institutions will favor minority students from underrepresented populations, such as those from an indigenous or economically-disadvantaged backgrounds. This public-private sector partnership is between the U.S. Department of State, Partners of the Americas and the Association of International Educators. Started under President Barak Obama, it has managed to survive the Trump presidency.
