NADBank announces students who will form the first class of NADBank University Ambassadors

  • In accordance with the terms of the notice, a total of 31 students were selected.
  • Students from 29 U.S. and Mexican universities responded to the call.

San Antonio, Texas – The North American Development Bank (NADBank) is pleased to announce that the first class of undergraduate students has been selected to serve as NADBank University Ambassadors from July 1 to December 31, 2023. The list of the students selected has been published on its website.

NADBank published a notice in April calling on students enrolled in institutions of higher learning in the United States and Mexico to apply to the program, in order to create a hub for dialogue and interaction with the student community, as well as to broaden their academic work and field of interest, especially in such areas as the environment, climate change, sustainable infrastructure projects, communication, international relations and business, and the economic, social and environmental aspects of the border. The students will also help disseminate the programs, projects and actions carried out by NADBank in benefit of U.S.-Mexico border communities.

“We are thrilled by the student response to this call to be part of a select group of young people interested in learning about and disseminating the work of NADBank, including issues related to the environment, bilateral collaboration and the development and financing of sustainable projects in the U.S.-Mexico border region,” stated NADBank Managing Director Calixto Mateos Hanel.  

NADBank wishes to thank the academic officials and professors for their support in disseminating this program on their respective campuses, as well as for supporting the students who applied. Likewise, NADBank congratulates the students selected and hopes that this experience will contribute to their academic and leadership development with a view to their future careers. The Bank also extends its thanks to all those who were interested in participating in the program.

The list of students selected is available on the NADBank website at:
