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 Sheila Vasquez and I am one of the lucky students who has been awarded with your generous Mexican Consulate IME Becas Scholarship. I am very appreciated and thank you for your financial award toward my education. I am a Mexican American, who is currently a junior in the nursing program at Brenau University. My parents are from Mexico City and they traveled specifically to expose me to education opportunities. Being a first-generation college student of my family, it created rough obstacles in my education goals. However, with your support, it has lessened some of my stress. You have lightened my financial burden which will allow me to focus more in my studies and dream of becoming a nurse. Once again, I am honored to receive your generosity and support.

Mi nombre es Sheila Vasquez y soy una de las afortunadas estudiantes que ha sido premiada con su generosa beca, IME Becas del Consulado Mexicano. Soy muy apreciado y les agradezco su premio financiero para mi educación. Soy Mexicano-estadounidense y actualmente estoy en el tercer año del programa de enfermería de la Universidad de Brenau. Mis padres son de la Ciudad de México y viajaron específicamente para exponerme a oportunidades educativas. Al ser un estudiante universitario de primera generación de mi familia, creó obstáculos difíciles en mis objetivos educativos. Sin embargo, con su apoyo, ha disminuido algo de mi estrés. Ha aliviado mi carga financiera, lo que me permitirá concentrarme más en mis estudios y sueño de ser enfermera. Una vez más, es un honor para mí recibir su generosidad y apoyo.
