At the beginning of October, Brenau renewed an agreement with El Instituto de los Mexicanos en el Exterior to provide funding and support for Mexican students from low-income households living in the United States who are completing basic or higher education or pursuing technological careers. The recipients recently wrote a letter of gratitude to the Mexican government for making this scholarship possible.

“My name is Getsemani Mojica. I am a first generation Mexican-American student at Brenau University. I am a junior and an early education major. I am planning on becoming an elementary school teacher when graduating and one day obtaining my doctorate in education. My mother immigrated from Durango, Mexico in 1997. As a single mother, my mother has worked in a factory for over 20 years and saved up for my college tuition for years. My family and I are extremely grateful to have selected me as an IME Scholarship Recipient and this opportunity is allowing me not only help my financial situation but is a step closer to becoming Ms. Mojica. I am very proud to be Mexican-American and be a part of my beautiful culture and I want to thank the Mexican consulate for allowing me to be a part of this amazing opportunity. Muchas gracias!”
