UC MEXUS-CICESE Graduate Student Short-Term Research and Non-degree Training

The purpose of the UC MEXUS-CICESE short-term program is to give graduate student fellows an opportunity to conduct research and acquire training at the University of California or the Centro de Investigación Científica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada (CICESE). Through this program, graduate student fellows receive support for short-term stays lasting from two weeks to three months in order to accomplish specific laboratory, library or field research; undertake specialized training; and increase their knowledge and access to new conceptual frameworks, techniques and methodologies.
