“ReconoceR is a palindrome that means ‘recognize’. It is read the same way from left to right and from right to left. The metaphor that this palindrome carries is what happens when young people go from the south to the north to pursue a better future and now, they return from the north to the south for the same reason, to get an education and the possibilities they obtain through this scholarship.”
In September 2016, Alejandro González Iñárritu and the Universidad de Monterrey created an alliance to confront the current situation of thousands of citizens who have had to leave Mexico and Central America in search of opportunities for improvement.
It is under this alliance that ReconoceR came into being. ReconoceR is a scholarship fund for young Mexican and Central American immigrants living in vulnerable situations in the United States and who have a conviction to return to Mexico to pursue their university studies.
Currently, the ReconoceR Scholarship Fund supports 8 students and pretends to consolidate itself, in order to help more young migrants to fulfill their dreams.
