This fall, the division is pleased to host 71 students from Mexico under the Bécalos Program through a partnership with the Mexican Government. These university students are all from low-income areas and have been awarded the academic opportunity to improve their English and gain exposure to American culture through the Bécalos Program.  We are proud to have the Bécalos students here at Skyline College.
