This coming spring break in March, Salem State University will fund a study abroad trip to Guanajuato, Mexico for 10 students as part of the university’s new exchange program with the Universidad de Guanajuato, Mexico (UGTO). In turn, eight Guanajuato students will spend a week on Salem State’s campus in June of 2020.
The program, which will cover the cost of travel, room and board, meals, and extracurricular activities for the students, is supported by a $25,000 grant that was awarded to Salem State and UGTO by the 100,000 Strong in the Americas Innovation Fund.
While in Mexico, the students will attend classes at UGTO, participate in seminars, and attend educational tours of historical sites including the Museo Iconográfico de Quijote and Teatro Juárez.
The grant is funded by the Mary Street Jenkins Foundation and came to fruition through the 100,000 Strong in the Americas Innovation Fund. The initiative is designed to increase partnerships between higher education institutions in the United States and the rest of the Western Hemisphere.
