QUIJADA LOVATON, Karin Yovana. Affirmative Actions for the University Inclusion of Afro-descendant and Indigenous Students in Brazil, Colombia and Mexico. Rev Cien Cult [online]. 2021, vol.25, n.46, pp.135-162. ISSN 2077-3323.

The article comparatively analyzes affirmative actions that have been developed in the universities of Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico for the inclusion of Afro-descendant and indigenous youth. From the metaanalysis, research published between 2010 and 2020 was selected, which was grouped into three categories: preferential admission programs, financial support, and intercultural universities. The findings show the gradual increase in the enrollment of students of ethnic origin; the limited supply of vacancies; scholarships and educational credits that barely cover their maintenance and intercultural universities with insufficient funding to undertake distance learning during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Keywords : Affirmative action; inclusion; ethnic groups; higher education; comparative analysis.
