Aaron, there's AMEDIMAC, the Fashion Designers Association of Mexico, Guillermo León is the president and he's got all the info that you're looking for regarding financial aid. I don't think they will help you personally but they can surely get you in contact with companies willing to pay a tuition overseas (patrocinadores)... you have to compete with other students though, and prove that you're their best bet since.. as you probably already know.. there's no money to spill in Mexico.. unless you have a few relatives up above. if you know what I mean. :p

I'm not sure if they have a website but you're in Mexico City, non?. their phone number must be somewhere in your yellow pages. good luck.

This is off topic, but I've been trying to get grants for years:



But in all seriousness, find out where you want to study first and then ask their financial aid department about scholarships and grants that they may be aware of. It's a lot easier when you can tell someone where you're going and what your intentions are.

All About Financing Fashion School or College - loans, grants, scholarships, etc.
For people who study in a country other than your home country in how do you finance your education? (Particularly US citizens studying in the EU.) I've noticed that most schools want to be paid up front. Is it worth writing to companies to try and solicit donations? Any other means of creative money raising?

to be honest i think most students do it with financial support from their parents/families..
scholarships and govt grants help too...
and i guess part time work makes a difference if you can juggle it..

Usually federal aid if the school qualifies, grnats, scholarships and loans, and if possible, parents.

My cousins are international students. (From Asia and currently studying in the States). They weren't allowed any US federal aid (grants, loans, etc). So basically all of their studies needed to be paid by cash up front. (tuition is doubled for International students here). Not only that, they are only allowed to work on campus --- and US residents are given first priority to all the positions and anything left over will then be considered for an International student. (Unless you have connections). To sum, studying abroad is VERY expensive and you would need a positive cash flow.

have you thought about going on exchange for a semester or two, francofille?..
it's a potential solution...you get the experience of studying abroad without having to finance the entire 4 year degree..

how many of you have taken out loans for college? or have you been saving up money?

I've been saving up money.. I worked full time last summer, and now work part time. I'll go back to working full time once school is done.
I'm also hoping for an entrance scholarship if I maintain my grades, as well as a few grants.
I will apply for OSAP (provincial loan), but I'm unsure how much money I will qualify to receive.
Once I'm in university, I would like to study 1 or 2 semesters abroad, and I know this can be quite expensive..!
