Amount, duration and disbursement of funds

The number of yearly scholarships and the amount of each one shall be determined by the amount of available funds.

The FECMC will grant a one-year scholarship to a Spanish-speaking individual for graduate studies in Journalism at an accredited university in the United States, starting on the 2006-2007 academic year.

The student must present proof of acceptance into a graduate journalism program and the conditions of his or her acceptance, as well as documentation concerning the cost of the program.

Currently, the amount of the scholarship is $7,000 a year. Half of the annual scholarship funds will be given directly to the student at the start of each semester. At the end of the first semester, if the performance and GPA are acceptable (3.0 or higher) and the student has abided by all the rules, the funds corresponding to the second semester will be released upon presentation of the corresponding documents. 

The scholarship will be withdawn immediately if the student's performance is not satisfactory: in addition to his passion for journalism, Carlos M. Castaņeda was known for his passion for excellence.
