Call for Proposals by the Mission Foods Texas-Mexico Center

The Mission Foods Texas-Mexico Center presents its 2017 Request for Proposals. We are now accepting proposals for:

  • Research grants
  • Evidence-based demonstration projects
  • Project/program evaluations
  • Policy papers

The Texas-Mexico Center is dedicated to improving relations between Texas and Mexico through dialogue and research. The Center works to encourage cross-border integration and collaboration in academia, government, NGOs and business. 

Through supporting key projects, the Texas-Mexico Center seeks to encourage research (both basic and applied) that will address key issues in the Texas-Mexico relationship, and by extension the U.S.-Mexico relationship, leading to policy recommendations that will help shape future integration. The research should prompt action and discussion amongst key stakeholders in the public and private sectors.

While the Center is open to considering research in any area that affects the Texas-Mexico relationship, it will prioritize proposals that focus on one of the following issues:

  • Trade and Investment
  • Energy
  • Border Issues
  • Migration and mobility
  • Education, Human Capital and Development

Special consideration will be given to projects that include scholars from institutions in the U.S. and Mexico. 

Deadline for submitting proposals is August 1, 2017.
