Financial Aid for Postgraduate Study Program (Programa de Apoyo a los Estudios de Posgrado [PAEP])

The Financial Aid Program for Postgraduate Studies helps Postgraduate Programs develop institutional projects, endorsed by the Academic Committees, which are geared towards strengthening the Postgraduate Programs’ infrastructure and the academic training of Master's and Doctoral students.  The call for PEAP applications is published once a year in the Gaceta UNAM (UNAM Gazette) and on the Coordination of Postgraduate Studies website.
