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.

IME Scholarship recipient Teresa Machuca writes:

One of the biggest milestones in my life was being a first generation college graduate. When I told my parents that I was accepted into an occupational therapy doctorate program, I knew how proud of me they were and the support they would provide as I am working towards this next milestone in my life. I am beyond grateful to be one of the recipients of the Mexican Consulate IME Becas Scholarship. This scholarship will allow for some financial support as I continue my education here at Brenau University. I am looking forward to my future career as an occupational therapist and being part of the diversification of this field.
