The postgraduate program provides grants for visiting researchers. Applications for these grants may be submitted following a call issued by PAEP (Program of Grants for Postgraduate Studies), typically in November every year.

The call is sent by email with an attached form that IRyA researchers must fill out and resend to xm.manu.ayri@grebnelloh.k.

Grants are considered by the Academic Committee and distributed equally among all postgraduate program departments. The amounts awarded are normally between 15,000 and 25,000 pesos.

To receive this grant, visiting researchers must:

  1. Teach a course or workshop.
  2. Present a talk.

Coordination of Scientific Research (CIC)

Intended for UNAM researchers and academic technical specialists. This program provides supplementary grants for national and international academic exchange activities to help cover the expenses of UNAM academic staff or visitors. The activity must be previously agreed with the counterpart higher education institution. Applications to participate as a speaker at an academic event are only considered when an additional teaching or research activity will be carried out.

Calls are generally published in September of each year. IRyA’s Academic Office sends an email with a link to the Call, where candidates may view the general conditions and requirements. They will also have access to the Academic Mobility Registration System application link. All documentation requested on the website must be sent to xm.manu.ayri@dacasa after which a document will be requested electronically via CIC system.

Grants to academic departments will be based on funding awarded to CIC for each activity. Amounts are usually no greater than 15,000 pesos, since these grants are intended to supplement those which academics have received from their particular departments.
