“The priority of awarding scholarships for postgraduate studies, provided for in Article 39 of the initiative, puts students enrolled in private higher education institutions at a disadvantage. This is reinforced by the discriminatory nature of the proposed regulations towards a segment of the population that decides, freely, to study in that institution that meet their academic expectations and interests. This measure creates another barrier to the difficult path that Mexican students go through in their scientific life, “the document adds.
