The Program

FoCUS is a student initiative dedicated to promoting positive U.S.-Mexico relations by fostering communication and mutual understanding among future leaders of the U.S. and Mexico. Our goal is to create a network of students to address social, political, economic or technological issues in innovative ways.


FoCUS is the product of the collaborative effort of students at Stanford University, the Instituto Tecnológio Autónimo de México (ITAM) and Tecnológico de Monterrey.


Each year, FoCUS invites 30 outstanding students from the U.S, and Mexico to become our Delegates. This group benefits from a range of academic and cultural opporuntities as they work on collaborative projects in preparation for the bi-annual FoCUS summits, which bring all Delegates together at Stanford and ITAM. 

Our Drive

By providing this group of talented students with valuable opportunities and tools, we aspire for them for them to become an engine of growth and cross-national collaboration. 

"FoCUS is not just an event, it is an unforgettable experience. I got to meet remarkable people, people that will change the world with their ideas."

~ Eugenio Herrera, FoCUS Delegate
