Tuition Assistance for Mexican Students (TAMS)

The Tuition Assistance for Mexican Students (TAMS) award provides a waiver of the nonresident portion of a student's tuition bill. The TAMS award is not a cash award. To be eligible for the TAMS award, you must be a citizen and resident of Mexico who demonstrates financial need. Receiving the TAMS award is not guaranteed as the application is competitive due to the limited number of awards.

New & Continuing students who do not currently have a TAMS award:

New or continuing students who qualify and do not currently have a TAMS award need to submit an initial TAMS application.

Submission deadline for the 2016-2017 Initial TAMS Application is May 27th, 2016. 

Continuing students who currently have a TAMS award:

Current recipients of the TAMS award must submit a TAMS Renewal Application in order to continue receiving their TAMS award for future years. Renewal of the TAMS award is not guaranteed and is dependent on both the amount of awards available and continued demonstration of financial need.

If you do not submit a TAMS Renewal Application by the deadline, then you may submit your application by the initial TAMS Award deadline instead. However, late submission of the TAMS Renewal Application reduces your likelihood of renewing your TAMS award.
