The University of Illinois has entered into an agreement with CONACYT (the National Science Foundation of Mexico) to support Mexican nationals who have been admitted into PhD programs at one of the three UI System universities.

CONACYT has agreed to support these PhD students for the first four years of their study. This is a competitive program and the student must apply for the CONACYT award after they have been accepted into a UI System PhD program.

The LaDu Lab is currently recruiting students for PhD programs in Neuroscience (GPN) or Graduate Education in Medical Sciences (GEMS) at the University of Illinois at Chicago via the CONACYT international scholarship program. See application details below. Please note the LaDu lab will provide tutoring for the admission process.
