The federal government will give away 40 scholarships to Mazatlán university students to study or improve their English language skills in the United States.
Federal deputy Martín Heredia Lizárraga said the 65,000 pesos scholarships will be donated to the Universidad Politécnica de Sinaloa, Universidad de Occidente, Instituto Tecnológico de Mazatlán and possibly the Universidad Autónoma de Sinaloa.
The scholarships include obtaining student visas, housing and certification in English proficiency. The universities and institutes, said the deputy, will decide which students will most benefit from the federal offer.
The lucky students will leave for the United States next month. (from Noroeste)
