The center provides a variety of educational services, including free introductory public information sessions on various topics of U.S. education, webinars, individual consultations on U.S. study, and application support services.

Our host, Comisión Mexico-Estados Unidos para el Intercambio Educativo y Cultural (COMEXUS) serves as the Fulbright Comission in Mexico. Through the Fulbright-Garcia Robles scholarships, COMEXUS supports students, researchers and professors (Mexican and American) to carry out graduate programs, research stays, teaching and professional programs in United States and Mexico. These programs are financed by the governments of both countries, and a small percentage comes from private companies and foundations.
